The Connecticut Irish-American Historical Society, which was founded in 1988, exists in order to collect, preserve and share materials related to the history and heritage of the Irish people in Connecticut. The Society preserves and shares Irish history and traditions in many ways, including presenting educational programs, attending festivals, maintaining archival collections, and promoting and assisting with genealogical research. The quarterly member newsletter, The Shanachie, contains historical articles, ideas for genealogical research, and notices of the Society's activities and vents.
