Shannon and Tony Quinn to Play the Souris Show Hall and the Katherine Hughes Memorial Hall at the BIS

Society objectives have remained consistent, with perhaps changing emphasis, since its founding in 1825. They are:

1.   To preserve and promote Irish history, culture, and heritage and, in particular,  its Gaelic, Celtic traditions.

2.   To carry out acts of charity and benevolence.

3.   To promote friendship and unity among the Irish and their descendants.

WELCOME TO THE BENEVOLENT IRISH SOCIETY OF PEI

COVID PROTOCOL NOTICE

Effective October 5th, all persons entering the Hall (unless the activity is on the published Environmental Health Exemption List) will be required to show proof of double vaccination at the door.  Masks continue to be mandatory for all persons entering the hall until further notice.   

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.

 

Check out our Friday night Ceilidhs, Irish Heritage Lecture Series, “Ceol Agus Cairde – Music and Friends” Winter Concert Series, and other events. There’s always something happening at the BIS Irish Hall!
