If you are one of the 33 million Americans who claim Irish heritage, or if you just love the “wearin’ o’ the green,” prepare for St. Patrick’s Day with over 350 years of South Carolina’s Irish history. In addition to well-known figures like Andrew Jackson and Joe Riley, many others of Irish descent have contributed to the culture of the city and the state. Dr. Joe Kelly, Director of Irish American Studies at the College of Charleston, will share their stories.
