Oh These Irish Hills! is a non-profit organization formed in the late summer of 2004. Our stated purpose is to advance an Irish Hills legacy. This legacy involves area individuals, groups, and organizations in activities that celebrate the beauty of the place, the spirit of its people, and the progression of its history.
