Named in Honor of our First President & Founder the Late Patrick Naughton
Since the division received it's charter 25 October 1969, it has been our dream to have our own building.
After many years and extraordinary efforts by many of our members the dream came to pass. In 1992 we purchased the building, a 100 year old structure, in the town of Monroe N.Y.
It obviously, at first glance, needed extensive renovations but it had great potential.
We are happy to say today, our dream has evolved into the Irish Cultural Center of Orange County, New York.
