The Kansas City Irish Center first opened in 2007 on the lower level of Union Station. The mission of the Center is to preserve, promote, celebrate and support Irish culture in our community. The Center offers year-round programming, actitivities, concerts and classes that encompass all aspects of Irish culture and heritage, reflecting both the past and contemporary Ireland.
Ongoing programs include genealogy workshops, Irish language classes, monthly book club, weekly knitting and hand crafts,
