New Orleans Downtown Irish Club
The Downtown Irish Club, Inc is a social organization dedicated to preserving and perpetuating the Irish Identity in the New Orleans. Celebrating our Irish heritage throughout each and every year since 1976, the Downtown Irish Club maintains that "everyone is Irish for a day", making our membership rich and diverse. We march from founders' Roy Markey, Sr. and Edward "Bud Rip" Ripoll Jr.'s iconic establishments in the Bywater to the heart of the French Quarter. With parade stops on Royal, Frenchmen, and Decatur, come out and enjoy the festivities that surround St Patrick's Day. For those interested in membership in the Downtown Irish Club and walking the historic parade route, come meet with us at one of the General Meetings listed below.
