On Saturday April 23, 2016 the Baltimore Hurling Club will host a match against the Allentown Hurling Club at 3:00 pm at the Centerville Middle School athletic fields. Several of the lads from Tellus 360 play for the Baltimore Club and it's a great opportunity to watch the national sport of Ireland being played as well as cheering on our friends from Tellus 360. In addition there will be two rugby matches featuring the Lancaster Red Roses Rugby Club preceding the hurling match. The rugby matches will run from 11:30 am until approximately 2:00 pm. Admission is free.

LIACS General Meeting

The Lancaster Irish American Cultural Society will hold a General Meeting on Sunday, April 24, 2016 at 1:30 pm at the Maple Grove Community Center on Columbia Avenue in Lancaster. Tom Daniels will conclude his multi-part presentation on the Easter Uprising in Ireland. It is only fitting that he do so on that day as it is the commemorative date of the 100th Anniversary of the Uprising. In addition to Tom's presentation there will be vocal performances of Irish music, Irish step dancers and food and beverages for members and their guests.
