Over 50 Years 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 January 2017 issue of the Reflections is online. In 1761, John MacNaghten, a ne'er-do-well, was sentenced to death for killing Mary Ann Knox. His hanging failed three times.

You can learn more about his life in the lead article, Half Hanged John MacNaghten.
