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 amongst 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.

In an effort to keep our membership rolls updated and our members in good standing, our Financial Secretary, Kathy Feeley, will be reviewing our records and sending out letters to members we may not have heard from in a while. We are hoping to allow these members to renew their membership, update their mailing preferences (paper mail vs. email), and sign up for the calling post notification system.
While many of our members are currently in good standing and will not be receiving these notices, we wanted to provide the membership with notification of this special mailing.
