In January 1978, a handful of East Side Irish enthusiasts convened before the Super Bowl for the inaugural meeting, laying the foundation for what would become the Irish American Club – East Side, Inc. Within a mere two months, the group's numbers swelled beyond capacity at the original venue, leading to a relocation to Smith's Restaurant in Euclid, Ohio.

Officially chartered on March 17, 1978, our club was established to cherish Irish heritage within a familial setting and organize a spectrum of social, cultural, educational, and athletic events. By May 1978, the first officers were elected.

As our membership flourished, we settled into Elk's Lodge in Euclid, initially serving as our "temporary" home. With an expanding Entertainment Committee orchestrating monthly events, a dedicated Schanachie publishing newsletters, and a vigilant Building Committee scouting for a permanent clubhouse, our vision began to crystallize. Following strategic planning and financial evaluations, in October 1981, the membership endorsed the purchase of Furniture Land Building in Euclid.

With zeal, a construction team commenced renovations on November 15, 1981, ushering in a new era as the Furniture Land Store transformed into the Irish American Club, East – Side, Inc. The milestone of our Grand Opening Celebration on January 23, 1982, marked the culmination of collective efforts.

For 46 years, our members have remained steadfast in advancing our club's legacy, embodying the spirit of camaraderie and celebration of Irish culture.
