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.

On August 13th the Association will honor Helen Collins, a solicitor and partner in Wolfe & Co Solicitors in Skibbereen, and our esteemed member Donie Carroll from New York and Douglas, a well known musician and one of Cork's favorite balladeers. 

Helen Collins was born in Clonakilty, Co. Cork, daughter of solicitor Liam Collins. Her grandfather, Johnny Collins, was the older brother of General Michael Collins, and, each year, Helen delivers the Collins family address at the Michael Collins commemorative service at Beal na mBlath. She is a graduate of University College Cork and has practiced law for the past forty years. In 2014 she wrote A Short Guide to Divorce Law in Ireland: A Survival Handbook for the Family. She is the former chairperson of the West Cork Arts Centre in Skibbereen and is the current chairperson of "A Taste of West Cork Food Festival" which showcases and promotes West Cork nationally and internationally. 

Donie Carroll is a native of Douglas and the youngest of ten children born to the late Paddy and Julie Carroll. A true sportsman, Donie played football, hurling and soccer. He was a Munster Boxing champion and is a member of the Cork Ex-Boxers Association who recently honored him with the Jack McCauliffe Medal. Music has always been a part of Donie's life. In Ireland, he played with the Cork folk group Finnegan's Wake and, in 1993, at the invitation of good friend Paddy McCarthy, Donie came to NY to play a six-week gig. The rest, as they say, is history. Donie quickly immersed himself in the Irish music scene and has recorded several CDs. After his rise in the music world, Donie made his acting debut at the Irish Repertory Theatre in John B. Keane's play Sive. He owns and operates Doncar Wallcovering and Painting Company.
