The Association is Cork people's home away from home in New York. Founded in 1884 the Association has been bringing Irish people together through the centuries to promote unity, good will and protection among its members and to foster their culture and traditions. The need for the Cork Association today is as good as it was when founded by the men from Cork City. The Association continues to do good work for the Irish in New York ,as well as, supporting various charitable events back home in County Cork.
We always are on the lookout for people with Cork roots to join and further strengthen the Association. If you are interested please contact us for more information.
