Six Decades Of Celebrating Wisconsin's Irish Life and Pride
In 1960, The Shamrock Club of Wisconsin started a revolution in the life of Irish Wisconsin. The organization started small, but eventually became the wellspring of Irish life and culture for much of Milwaukee and the State of Wisconsin. Where there was a void in the cultural side of life, soon the Shamrock Club would fill it with parades, Irish dancing, an Irish festival, scholarships, and so much more.

The December 2017 issue of the Emerald Reflections is online. In 1950, a song was released that has become a seasonal favorite. Irish-American Dennis Day sang Christmas in Killarney and it rose to number 10 on the charts.
The tune was written by the American songwriting team of John Redmond, James Cavanaugh and Frank Weldon. In 1951, Bing Crosby put it to vinyl. And it is now the centerpiece for a festival in Killarney each November and December. Learn more about it all inChristmas in Killarney - A Festive Festival Song.
