Discover the Catskills incredible Irish cultural offerings and festivals
The Michael J. Quill Irish Cultural and Sports Centre's objective is to preserve and promote Irish/ Irish American culture and artistic heritage. We host, sponsor and promote several Irish festivals and events, most notably the Catskills Irish Arts Week.
The Quill Center is located in beautiful East Durham, New York - also known as the Emerald Isle of the Catskills, due to its striking resemblance to the lands of Ireland - and home to the Irish Park, a one-acre map of Ireland constructed entirely of red bricks. This map has the distinction of being the largest map of Ireland in the world, with all the counties correctly laid out and named.
