Lucky to be Irish

The Irish people have a proud history and cherish their culture, no matter where they live today. In the U.S., St. Patrick’s Day — the feast day of Ireland’s patron saint — has become a popular holiday, embraced nationwide as an opportunity to celebrate Irish heritage. The city of Chicago even dyes the Chicago River green every year in honor of the occasion. On MyHeritage, you’ll be able to explore 14 million Irish historical records and glean new information from 120 million family tree profiles with Irish origins.
