    OPENING on January 29, 2022, in the Robert and Mary Ann Bury Community Gallery - THE GAELIC LEAGUE OF DETROIT: PROUD PAST, PROMISING FUTURE

    Since it formed in December 1920 after a worldwide call from beleaguered Irish patriots, the Gaelic League and Irish American Club of Detroit has been a home away from home for many immigrants and a center for anything Irish in its pub, lounge, and gathering hall. A remnant of urban America once defined by ethnic and neighborhood ties, the club has a century-old clubhouse on Michigan Avenue and has hosted newsworthy galas, international diplomats, and famous entertainers. Generations of families have connected through the club, and it continues to be a support to community organizations throughout the city. Learn more about the proud history of The Gaelic League and Irish American Club of Detroit as it begins its second century in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood. This exhibit showcases the fraternal organization's rich contributions to Metro Detroit as well as its spirit of fellowship, welcome and social consciousness.
