do you have a physical address or just web-based information?
Richard – At this point in time, the Florida Irish Heritage Center is a web-based educational service. We have no budget, don’t require membership, and rely upon volunteers. Someday, after we have accumulated enough material to mount exhibits, we might set up a permanent display somewhere. Since most of the historical sites relating to the early Irish in Florida are in North Florida, St. Augustine would be the appropriate location for any future physical location.
Excellent work and I am glad I discovered it.
Do you have a phone number to speak to someone ?
