Help Save The Club!

For 140 years, our club has been an integral part of our vibrant history, both nationally and internationally. Presidents, Senators, Congressman and even the Heavyweight Boxing Champion of the World have visited. But our true commitment is embracing and nurturing our Irish-American heritage and culture. Traditional music, step-dancing, bagpipes, Gaelic football and hurling are embraced. 

Over the years this club has been a huge part of many peoples lives, from weekly gatherings to after work drinks, from weddings to the Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations. There have been so many memories shared here with those who have immigrated from Ireland to share their stories, met people who have become more than friends, they have become family. John Boyle has welcomed members, non members and people from all cultures. Like so many organizations, COVID-19 has hit us hard; the restrictions have been devastating.  Although we aggressively search for grants and other funding sources they are not guaranteed.  We are saddened to be in the position that we need to ask for help and will be very gracious and humbled for any that we receive. Sadly there is a very realistic chance of the club closing.  The John Boyle O'Reilly Club is a tax deductible non-profit 501c3. Your kindness and generosity will enable us to continue to perpetuate culture, history, community service and wonderful memories
