Fun facts about the Irish in Memphis:

  • In the Mid-1800s, teacher Eugene Magevny, an Irish immigrant from County Fermanagh, helped establish Memphis’ public school system, as well as the city’s first Catholic church, St. Peter’s on Adams Avenue. His house is open to the public for tours when it's not a pandemic.
  • Mary Harris Jones, better known as Mother Jones, immigrated from County Cork. She lost her husband and four children in the Yellow Fever Epidemic in the Pinch District, which was a heavily Irish neighborhood at the time. Mother Jones went on to become one of the most prominent labor and community organizers in American history.
  • Sarah Hardin Murphy Leath immigrated from Belfast, Ireland and married James Leath. Later in life, she donated nine acres of land that became a home for widows and orphans, and left an additional 20 acres in her will. That organization evolved into the nonprofit you know today as Porter-Leath. 
  • Modern Irish Memphians DJ Naylor, and Patrick and Deni Reilly run some pubs and restaurants you probably know and love  -- Celtic Crossing and Majestic Grille/Cocozza.
  • Memphis Gaelic Athletic Association offers co-ed opportunities to all Memphians interested in playing the traditional Irish sports of hurling and Gaelic football.
  • Memphis Irish Society is a group for Irish diaspora and enthusiasts of Irish culture, which offers social and learning opportunities around traditional music, Irish (Gaelic) language and more. It’s open to anyone -- Irish or not -- with an interest in the Land of Saints and Scholars.

Thank you for the St Patrick’s Day event info. I’m a native Memphian who moved away 30 years ago. My wife and I return every year to celebrate the Green Day with family and friends.
