History

The Gaelic Arts Society of Pittsburgh was founded in 1955 by Brother Dominic Reardon, C.S.Sp. It was established to bring the rich history, literature, traditions, and crafts of the Irish people to Western Pennsylvanians. The Society's philosophy is to promote a conciousness of the influences of Irish thought and action in the advancement of American Ideals. The Society is not limited to only the native Irish now living in Pittsburgh, but to all people interested in Irish culture.
