To all of our friends in the Ireland Network.


I would like to formally announce the new officers of Ireland Network Chicago (IN CHICAGO) elected at our first meeting on June 11th, 2018.


PRESIDENT: Ferdia Doherty

SECRETARY: Molly McGrail

TREASURER: Joe McKittrick


We are all delighted to be part of a strong and bustling organization and look forward to working with the Dept. of Foreign Affairs in promoting Irish Culture, business, tourism and beyond. In the coming weeks we will be outlining our plans for 2018/19 with some significant growth ideas and applications to move the brand forward and build upon what has been an amazing 14+ years.


I would be remise in not mentioning the brilliant James Sheehan, Imelda Gallagher, Barbara Andrews, Mairead O Riordan and the entire committee for the outstanding work that was done over the past number of years. They have truly left us with a strong, meaningful and most importantly future thinking organization. Thank you to all of them for their commitment and time spent on this great organization.

Ireland Network Chicago is a business and social network of  Irish or those with a strong affinity to Ireland living and working in the Chicago area. Our mission is to serve as a bridge for newly arrived Irish and those connected to Ireland to the established Chicago business and Chicago Irish communities, and we fulfill that mission by hosting frequent events in a wide variety of settings and formats. We invite you to get involved. Connect with colleagues, develop new contacts, share your expertise, and participate in the many network events across the calendar.

Please take a few moments to browse these web pages and resources. Then sign up for IN-Chicago’s event emails, or become a member and take advantage of preferred member rates at events, access to the IN-Chicago membership directory (and soon the IN-USA directory), and connection to the vibrant Irish business and social community in Chicago and beyond. We look forward to seeing you at our next event.
