About Us

For Irish people and those with a strong affinity for Ireland, Ireland Network Chicago provides a social and business networking hub that connects people who are passionate about building meaningful relationships with likeminded Chicagoans. 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.
