Welcome to The Emerald Isle Club Website.

Over the past 50 years the Club has become well-known in the Maryland Irish Community for its members' dedication and support of traditional Irish music and dance, Irish charities, Irish ancestry and language, and for its strong monthly ceili program.

We extend an invitation to all people who are strongly committed to these same ideals to join our organization and work to strengthen the awareness of Irish heritage in the Baltimore and Maryland communities. Read More.

Please join us at our Monthly Ceili.

Possible Battle of Baltimore Tour - Fall of 2014
The EIC Board is considering a local bus tour to sites related to the Battle of Baltimore in 1814 to commemorate the 200th Anniversary of this momentous event in the history of our City and Nation. This event would be a daytrip on a weekday between Sep 17 and Sept 26.

Before committing both time and resources, the Board would like an indication of interest from the membership. If you would participate in such an activity, please respond to jmurph.1@netzero.com

If the response is sufficient, we will pursue plans for such a tour.
