Irish American Cultural Institute National Organization
Incorporated in 1964 in Minnesota, the foundations of the Irish American Cultural Institute were actually laid by a series of television programs in 1962.
In writing a series of of programs on Ireland for television, Dr. Eoin McKiernan received such an overwhelming response that he was encouraged to create the Institute. The IACI is a federally recognized 501c(3) not-for-profit national organization
Over the past four decades, the IACI has carved an honored place for the Irish dimension in American life. No comparable body has such an impressive track record of achievement and sustained programming.
It now is the leading Irish American cultural organization, devoted to promoting an intelligent appreciation of Ireland and the role and contributions of the Irish in America. The IACI is strictly apolitical and nonsectarian, and is the only Irish American organization that has as its patron, The President of Ireland.
