History of the Center for Irish Studies
History of the Center for Irish StudiesThe Center for Irish Studies opened on Jan. 23, 2003, in the Link-Lee Mansion at the University of St. Thomas. There was a ribbon-cutting ceremony, attended by Irish Consul General Charles Sheehan, Honorary Consul of Ireland John B. Kane, the Most Rev. J. Michael Miller, CSB (Archbishop of Vancouver; then University President), University President Emeritus and Founding Center Director Dr. Joseph McFadden, Center Director Lori Gallagher, J.D., and many other well-wishing University faculty, staff and friends.

In November 2010, the University renamed the Center for Irish Studies in honor of William J. Flynn, who played a significant role in the Northern Ireland Peace Process.

Today, the William J. Flynn Center for Irish Studies is located at 4206 Yoakum Blvd., on the UST campus.

In its short history, the William J. Flynn Center for Irish Studies has made its mark by offering a wide range of cultural events to the University community and the community at large, as well as a broad array of academic courses in Irish Studies, both on campus and in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
