One Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

           Aha! You found us! Thank you for visiting this page.

We are pleased to bring to you, the only Irish focused group in all of

Tampa Bay. There are several fine Scottish/Celtic groups, and many wonderful Irish pubs in the region, and we love them all.

             We present to you an opportunity to connect with others that have

                       an interest, fondness or love of all things Irish & Gaelic!

In addition to gathering socially, our goal is to create a fellowship of people that are interested in sharing their talents & knowledge.

Currently, the St. Petersburg International Folk Fair (SPIFFS) is in the process of preparing for Folk Fair events in the near future!!

Proud to say the we will be the Irish group represented at SPIFFS!!!    

This is where we could fill in this missing part of the Celtic community with this amazing and diverse organization. Thousands of school children and families from 5 Tampa Bay/Suncoast counties have come to SPIFFS Folk Fair. SPIFFS is celebrating 46 great years!

Due to the COVID situation, Folk Fair 2021 will be on hold.

Look for our SIGH group to be part of a number of SPIFFS events to be held during 2021 & 2022.

Because of the current Coronavirus pandemic, we have connected through social media and communicating via emails and ask that you support our group through your membership & donations.

We have held exciting ZOOM meet-ups. We shared a Samhain Celebration on All Hallows Day and then a YULETIDE/CHRISTMAS celebration. We have had some wonderful guest speakers to share their knowledge and we have been fortunate to have them! Thank you to William Fisher, Kim Graham, Gary Fuller & Gerry O'Connor.

We held a grand in-person WELCOME GATHERING on Jan 31st, 2021 and

enjoyed meeting some of our newest members in a covid-safe environment.

We were able to support our MEMBER musicians: Celtic Conundrum.

We have been to the "sidewalk cafe" at Mary Margaret's Irish pub to hear fellow members/musicians Brendan Nolan & Cage O'Hanlon.

                 (A few pictures are posted on our "SCRAPBOOK" page.)

Our Facebook page welcomes educational, enlightenment, interesting facts and general information to be submitted as it pertains to to the Irish/Gaelic Culture and your experiences.

A music jam is definitely on our future schedule as soon as we can

get together and share the craic.

  DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID STATISTICS, we will not be holding in person meetings for our group. The plan is to have an
OCTOBER 2021 ZOOM meeting.
(Date & Tme TBA)

Sadly, there will not be a SPIFFS Folk Fair held this October. This decision was made for the health and safety of all that would be part of the event as well as the many attendees.
SPIFFS, however, is putting plans together to have smaller Folk Fair related events that we can also be part of. Once these are in place,  we will be sending out notifications.

At any time you are welcome to become a member or a sponsor to support SIGH.

Thank you and stay healthy folks.
Yours in Celtic Harmony,
your SIGH officers

The purpose of Suncoast Irish & Gaelic Heritage
is to meet as friends to share and celebrate the rich cultural heritage
of Ireland and the Gaels, and to welcome all who share this goal.
We intend to share the enjoyment of Irish/Gaelic Language, Food,
Drink, Music, Dance, Folklore, Crafts, Arts and Literature, as well as
the glorious history, and the spectacular scenery of this land.
This club will represent Ireland for the Saint Petersburg International Folk Fair Society
(SPIFFS)  and will dedicate a display of our Irish Village representing the Irish and Gaelic
culture in the Saint Petersburg International Folk Fair and in other similar
cultural events in and around the greater Tampa Bay area.
