The Wild Geese in NYC

Ah, the bright lights, the skirl of the bagpipes, the constant procession of Irish cultural events and diversions — all in the greatest Irish city in the world. . . . Come join The Wild Geese in New York City as we pursue and engage Irish culture throughout the metropolis’ byways and boreens. Many of The Wild Geese are based in metro New York, and we will seek out their events and venues, among others, to provide support for them and for Irish culture in the city, whether this be in Carnegie Hall or the Times Square subway platform. Join us, let us know what events you recommend we support and we will look to ‘rally the troops.’

Up and Coming for The Wild Geese in NYC!

Please join The Wild Geese in NYC, and hundreds of others, for New York Irish Center's Annual Fundraiser, Thursday April 10. Doors 6.30pm, at Symphony Space, 2537 Broadway & 96th St, New York, NY 10025.

The Queens-based center is thrilled to be back at Symphony Space for the Manhattan event, featuring an All-Star Night of Comedy & Music.

Headline act is Irish comedy legend Brendan Grace (pictured left). Brendan's latest show features some brand new material and some 'Old Favorites' from his vast repertoire over the last 40 years. His sense of timing and ability to read an audience is without equal. A brilliant character actor, his 'Bottler' character is legendary and is now featured at every performance.

Providing the ceol are rockers Enter the Haggis, who will be presenting a mixture of the very best of your favorite Irish music and some of their own original material.

The event's Master of Ceremonies is Irish comedian, best-selling author, broadcaster and @Irishmammies Twitter sensation Colm O'Regan (YouTube link). Colm (photo right) hails from the County Cork village of Dripsey.

NYIC's fundraiser is key to enabling the center to serve the New York Irish and those who want to enjoy the center's abiding sense of community. Every ticket sold fuels our mission to provide a home for all the generations of Irish in New York to unite in community.

Please RSVP for the event via our Events Listing, and then don't forget to buy your ticket(s)

For more information, contact our fellow member and NYIC Executive Director Paul Finnegan, or phone the center at 718-482-0909. We'll look for a typically Irish, nearby group venue for dinner beforehand. Let me know about joining us, via ger@TheWildGeese.comSee you there!

I'm a member of Artists Without Walls based in NYC and there are many Irish themed events sponsored by them. Hope it isn't too late to plan for this show for those of you based in NY - https://www.artistswithoutwalls.com/2014/03/13/family-entertainment...

Looking forward to seeing "Transport" at the Irish Rep. Have been a fan of Black 47 for many years.

Purchased my tickets before I knew a group trip was planned. Saw it last Thursday and it was delightful. Although the story was sad, the acting and singing were amazing and the few dances were fun. Overall, a great experience. Hope you all enjoy it as much as my husband and I did.

Jim, Brigid a chairde, delighted you'll be joining Mary and I. I believe Paraic Feeney and a pal are joining us as well, with others a distinct possibility. I'd be absolutely thrilled to get 10 on board, and we can certainly accomodate them. Let me know ASAP if you know anyone further whom might join us. I'd be happy to personally invite them. Ger

Donna a chara, I'm pleased that you enjoyed the performance and that you took the time to tell us. Looking forward to meeting you soon at an upcoming event.
