Brick-by-Brick – Preservation and Restoration of the Maine Irish Heritage Center

Join Us! Become A Steward of This Iconic Place

Our vision is ambitious as befits the architectural gem that has been entrusted to us. Won’t you help us continue to extend the spirit of “Fáilte” to all members of Maine’s diverse community?

Over the years, we have made significant progress on completing many critical projects, but working on historic buildings is complex, intricate – and costly.

Current Need

Help us make progress on our building master plan by supporting our efforts to address four major exterior projects:

  • A complete restoration of restoration of the iconic bell tower
  • Refurbishing of the grand entry façade and its stunning rose window
  • The repair of the cupola
  • Restoration of 22 priceless stained-glass windows in the upper sanctuary

Before we can begin interior renovations, we must prioritize the exterior work to seal the leaks that are causing interior damage.

Future Vision

Our future vision is to make this magnificent space into the premier gathering place in the Greater Portland area. This requires interior renovations to improve the building’s capacity and accessibility. 

Ultimately, we plan to create a new modern performance space that includes a music rehearsal room, updated art and history exhibition space, as well as a bar area.
