No questions will be asked that you don’t want to answer,and complete confidentiality is promised.
We also organize regular Irish Senior Luncheons throughout the year in the Seattle area and all Irish Seniors and their spouses or significant others are invited to attend.
If you are an Irish Senior, either by birth, by ancestry or by interest, you are invited to join us at any of our Irish Senior Luncheons that are held in the Seattle area four times annually. Email your name and address to Seniors @ irishclub.org or call 253-237-2811 and we’ll add you to our notification list.
