Irish Day

18th (2015) Annual Eddie Ward Irish Heritage Day

Held each Labor Day.



This event will once again be held this Labor Day at the Holbrook AOH Hall in Holbrook, Iowa.  Brothers Harold and Gerry Gaffey have put together a huge database on the Irish of Linn, Johnson and Iowa counties including many family genealogies, pictures, town history books, school yearbooks and obituaries. There are also complete records about  the families of St Michael’s church, Holbrook. Come and share your family information. Bring drinks or treats and learn more about your Irish ancestors.

This event is open to all. Come early and spend the day researching your ancestors.

If you have any questions, please call Marilyn Gaffey at 319-325-6556 or email her.
