We are very pleased to offer the premiere edition of the Maine Irish Heritage Center’s 2022 Calendar.

By popular demand, this edition focuses on the people whose determination and indomitable spirit forged the path creating the vibrant community we’re all proud to be a part of.

One out of six Mainers can trace their roots back to Ireland. By the turn of the twentieth century, they transcended discrimination and economic adversity to become an integral part of Maine’s growth and development.

Throughout these pages, we pay tribute to those who championed the Irish-American way of life and the Irish immigrant experience in Maine.

The Maine Irish Heritage Center (MIHC) is the hub of all things Irish in Maine where connections to Maine’s Irish history and culture can flourish. For those with an interest in Irish culture and history, we provide a wealth of treasures that remind us of the contributions of the Irish to the very fabric of Maine.
