Céad Míle Fáilte


A hundred thousand welcomes!


 The Friendly Sons of St. Patrick of Central Iowa are a merry band of gentlemen that enjoy gathering together to commune and celebrate their Irish heritage. Membership is open to those men who are at least 21 years of age who can trace their lineage to Ireland. Monthly membership meetings consist of dinner, a few pints and a whole lot of blarney.

We are also a benevolent organization. We stage several community events each year including the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, St. Patrick’s 5K & 10K Runs and Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day Celebration and Bike Ride. With the support of many sponsors & contributors we are able to raise money that is donated back to local organizations in need that we call our
Community of Caring.


“Wherever you go, and whatever you do


may the luck of the Irish


be there with you.”
