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.

Thanks for Parade week success!

A big Thank You to all who participated in this year's St. Patrick's Day Parade, braving the chill to paint the city green.  Thanks to those who cared for and entertained our Irish visitors. And a special thanks to all who dug into their pocket books to help us pay city fees at the eleventh hour.  Our annual celebration of the Feast of St. Patrick is a communal effort; it happens because of you, so pat yourself on the back.

The Irish Are Here!

Jim O' The Mills in SLC for St. Patrick's Week

The group of young Irish musicians joining us for St. Patrick's Day have arrived in SLC via Jim O' the Mills, the world-famous traditional music venue in Thurles, Co. Tipperary.
The Irish musicians will be in Salt Lake for a full week, performing at the Siamsa after the parade, at a March 16 concert and at a series of sessions during which local musicians will have the opportunity to play with the visitors.
Below you can read about Jim's place and view photos from the group's last visit in 2012.

Bringing the Irish to Utah is among the most important, and most expensive, activities of the Hibernian Society. Donations to help defray the cost of the visit will be gratefully accepted through this website, or at PO Box 9389 Salt Lake City, UT 84109.

Siamsa Schedule posted

Here is the schedule of acts on three stages at Siamsa, which takes place after the Mar. 15 parade at the Gateway Grand Hall. The Grand Hall is located at the north end of the mall upstairs from the fountain. Doors open at 11 a.m.

If your ready for more music after Siamsa ends, you might want to check out Young Dubliners playing with local Irish Rockers and Hibernian Society friends Swagger next door at The Depot.
