- "The Shamrock Club is the oldest and largest Irish American
organization in the State of Wisconsin.
- It was founded on March 17, 1960, in Milwaukee. Currently,
there are chapters in Milwaukee, Northeastern Wisconsin, Rock
County, La Crosse, South Central, Dane County, New London, and
Lafayette County. Statewide chapters hold monthly meetings, organize
St. Patrick's Day parades, change the city of New London to New
Dublin for the week, raise the flag over the State Capitol, as
well as other Irish related activities. All of our chapters are
involved in fund-raising and have donated thousands of dollars
to numerous causes in the past four decades. Membership includes
the printed version of our monthly publication Emerald Reflections."
