The Montreal Canadiens are not the only ones celebrating an important anniversary in the province. The St. Patrick's Society and the Irish Protestant Benevolent Society are celebrating their jubilee anniversaries in 2009. Because of this both got together with the McCord Museum in order to put together this exhibition which focuses on the Irish in Quebec.
Many people in Montreal and Quebec can trace their heritage back to the Emerald Isle of Ireland. The McCord Museum is running an exhibit that should be of interest to many. Being Irish O'Quebec tells the tale of the Irish in the province and the contributions they made and continue to make the culture, social and political makeup of the province since the times of New France.
Within the province of Quebec the Irish have always been one of the more significant cultural groups. Large in number and having made serious contributions to every aspect of Quebec society, the Irish have certainly made their mark. This exhibit walks you through much of what they have done over the many years they have been here.
The Biography Booths, Story Stations and a look at the St. Patrick's Day Parade will teach you everything you wanted to know about the Irish in Quebec.
