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.

April Membership Meeting

On the agenda ... elections and discussion about the activities of the coming year, during which all Ireland and Irish America will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising. Also, we are planning to hold a welcome evening for the gobs of new members who signed up in March during either May or June. Come with ideas of how to make this happen. .......................................................................................

Parade Awards

Thanks to all who marched and cheered the 2015 parade Going Green.  And a huge thanks to the wonderful musicians and dancers who made the post-Parade Siamsa a blast.  Truly a wonderful day for the Irish in Salt Lake City!   And the winners are ...

Best Over-All Entry President's Trophy -- McNamara's Band!  They have been with us since the beginning, since they were pups, but believe it or not this is the first time McNamara's Band has taken home the President's Trophy.  A well-deserved honor and a lesson to other would-be award winners: just pay your dues for 35 years and you too could walk away with a trophy.
