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.

Join the Emerald Isle Club for a professionally guided bus tour of the places where significant actions in the Battle of Baltimore occurred, in celebration of the 200 Anniversary of this singular event in our Nation's history.

The trip is on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 from 8:30am to 3:00pm.
The cost is $33.00 per person.

Reservations can be made by sending a check payable to the Emerald Isle Club to:

Payment must be received by Tuesday, September 9.

The tour will be narrated and lead by Alyce McChrystal, who has served as a professional tour guide in Baltimore for a number of years.

The bus will pick us up and drop us off at the American Legion Post #183 Hall, 2301 Putty Hill Avenue, Parkville, MD 21234
(The same location that our monthly EIC Ceili Dances are held.) Note: Please park at the rear of the building.

Map Link.

The tour will be visiting Fort McHenry, where the grounds and the Visitors' Center are free, including an excellent video about the history of the fort and the Battle of Baltimore. We will also be unfurling the big flag on the fort lawn (weather permitting). The tour of the fort itself costs $7, which is an optional fee payable at the fort and is NOT included in the EIC tour price.

If you have a National Parks Senior Pass, you can tour the fort free and bring along three guests. A Senior Pass will get you into any Federal park or monument free for the rest of your life. A Senior Pass can be purchased at the Visitors' Center for $10.

Photo identification will be requested to verify pass ownership.

There will be a pay your own way lunch stop during the tour at
In Like Flynn (formerly J. Patricks) in Locust Point. Alternatively you may pack a lunch and bring it with you.

See the flier for supplemental information. If you have any questions or need further information, please direct your inquires to Jack Murphy or Bob Powers.
