The Benevolent Irish Society is one of the oldest organizations in Prince Edward Island. Established in 1825 the Society was incorporated by an Act of the Legislature in 1882 .
Originally established to meet the needs of Irish immigrants and the poor of all denominations, today the Society places increasing emphasis on preserving and promoting Irish history, culture and heritage, and in particular its Gaelic, Celtic traditions.
There’s always something happening at the BIS Irish Hall!
