Welcome to the Hibernian Society of Utah

The Hibernian Society of Utah was formed more than 30 years ago to promote and preserve Irish history, culture and traditions within the State of Utah. The Society meets once a month, holds informal classes and annually presents Utah's St. Patrick's Day celebrations.

2015 Utah Irish Open 4-Person Scramble

There is a nip in the air.  Some kid named Paul Dunne is leading the Open Championship.  It must be time for the Hibernian Society's Utah Irish Open, Sunday, Sept. 27, @ Mt. Dell.  Get your 4-person team together now for a chance at the coveted shillelagh.  Rumors abound that the ever beguiling Maureen O'Hara will grace the course with an appearance ... and even the mythical Golden Keg, not seen for years, could await the winner.

Thanks to all who came out to our celebration of James Joyce's masterpiece Ulysses. A good time was had by all at an event that put SLC on the map of Joyce lovers throughout the west. 

A special thanks to Dr. Vincent Cheng, our scholar for the evening; the wonderful musicians; and our cosponsors, The Eccles Street Irregulars. 

Same time next year, we hope.
