Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the ban of public gatherings of over 100 people, initially planned from March 13 to 17, 2020 Saint Patrick's Day the Irish Cultural Center is cancelled.
In light of the recent news shared by the French and Irish governments, the Irish Cultural Center unfortunately has to shut down STARTING THIS FRIDAY MARCH 13th AT 6 P.M. AND UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. The access to the media center, the chapel and the courtyard and rooms is now banned.

Every year, usually celebrated on March 17, the Centre Culturel Irlandais celebrates Saint Patrick’s Day.

For this edition 2020, from March 13 to 17, 2020, the Centre Culturel Irlandais decided to offer you a series of events. On the occasion traditional music will be given pride of place with not less than three concerts.

Careful, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Irish Cultural Center is "obliged to cancel both CCI's St Patrick's Day family events on Saturday and Sunday afternoon and Irish in France's St Patrick's Day parade on Saturday afternoon. We do this in the public interest and to support efforts to contain the Corona virus." Yet, the three concerts on March 13, 15 and 17 are sustained.

Here’s the program!
