In response to the COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on the health and well-being of so many, the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick are offering emergency assistance to individuals and families within the Irish community who have been significantly impacted by income disruption.

If you are in a position to donate to families in need at this time, please consider a contribution to the Society. 100% of your donated funds will be dispersed to families in financial need. Click here to donate now.

As we know, we are in critical times for many businesses throughout the Greater Philadelphia region and the Island of Ireland. Members and friends based in the Philadelphia area can do a small part to support fellow members and Irish restaurants/bars/pubs by purchasing gift cards and take out, while still practicing safe social distancing.

• While The Plough & The Stars, a member company since the early days of the Irish Chamber, is closed temporarily, gift cards are available on their website at or by calling 215-733-0300 and leaving a message. Take-out is also available, for more details, please click HERE.

Con Murphy’s, the venue for our 2021 St. Patrick’s Day Parade breakfast, is now available for take-out on Grub Hub.

The Hearth in Havertown will offer take-out and safe delivery (in Havertown only) on St Patrick’s Day from their Irish menu. Orders must be placed by phone only.

Thank you to Irish Chamber members Aer Lingus for continuing to support Philadelphia’s Irish community and our St. Patrick’s Day Parade Association!
