Irish Night

A virtual friend-raiser to benefit the Intensive Education Academy: A School Built on Love

March 8-20, 2021

This year Irish Night is a virtual event!

Instead of joining us at IEA for a delicious corned beef and cabbage dinner, you'll pick up your delicious meal to-go directly from Effie's Place in West Hartford any time between March 8-20, 2021. IEA has partnered with Effie's Place so that proceeds from the sale of these dinners will benefit the students at IEA. 

When you get home with your hot meal, you can log online and enjoy entertainment from the Carroll Sisters fiddlers and the Mulcahy Academy of Irish Dance. You'll even learn some of the basic steps that are the foundation to traditional Irish step dancing! IEA will also bring you the luck o' the Irish with a scratch off door prize ticket. Every ticket holder with a 1 in 25 chance to win our door prize: a $20 gift card to a retailer* of your choice!


$20.00 per person

Tickets are on sale NOW at IEA's event site:


*Door prize winners will receive a Giftogram virtual gift card. See list of retailers available at
