HomeAbout Us


Welcome to the website of the Irish American Bar Association of New York. IABANY exists to foster connections, synergies and friendship among the men and women of the New York bar who are proud of their Irish heritage or who are simply fans of Irish culture.

With a proud history spanning four decades, we host social, cultural and educational events to provide opportunities for our members to meet and deepen their relationships.

Our two marquee events, Wine Geese and Wild Goose Awards and our annual Bloomsday Celebration and John Quinn Memorial Address, are the highlights of our events calendar, while our Womens Lawyers' Forum hosts discussions on pertinent cultural, political and legal topics. Details of all upcoming events can be found in our Events calendar. 

We pay special attention to our younger members of the bar, whether they be recently arrived from Ireland or Irish-American graduates from law schools in the US, so that we may act as a source of support and advice in helping them establish their careers.

Please join us and help us to to foster and harness the resources and camaraderie of the Irish and Irish American legal community of New York.
