The ever-popular Irish Night is an evening of congeniality and Irish entertainment that brings hundreds of people from the Lauralton family together to celebrate the school’s long affinity for Irish culture and hospitality. The Sisters of Mercy were founded by Catherine McAuley in Dublin and, in addition to paying homage to Lauralton Hall’s Irish roots, proceeds from this special event support the Carriage Barn Restoration Challenge.
Award winning musicians and dancers fill the evening with entertainment. In addition, the Best Table optional contest offers guests the opportunity to become as creative and competitive as they like, decorating their tables in the spirit of the season. Trophies are awarded—including a perpetual trophy with the engraved names of first-place winners—so your collaborative creativity can live on in the Lauralton archives! Take a chance on the amazing prizes in our “Luck of the Irish” raffle.
Guests bring their own beverages, ice and snacks while the Irish Night Committee, parents of current and alumnae students, and alumnae provide Irish soda bread, desserts, coffee and tea.
