In conjunction with College of Charleston Libraries’ Special Collections, College of Charleston’s Irish and Irish American Studies program sponsors the Irish Heritage Project. The Irish Heritage Project is striving to become the repository for papers of local Irish American families, professionally preserving and cataloging such records for future generations. The program aims to provide finding aids for archival materials held in both Special Collections and the South Carolina Historical Society archives. The Irish Heritage Project collects oral histories that convey living memories of Irish and Irish American experiences in Charleston, SC and in the American South.
