From its inception, the Fairfield County Irish Festival has been a huge success and has become the premiere showcase of the best of Irish entertainment, food and a special hospitality that welcomes all who come during the weekend. With its success it became evident that the hospitality of the Festival should be extended to an organization dedicated to education and the generosity of charitable works. To that end, FEILE, Incorporated was formed in 1989 and recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a public charity under Section 501(c)(3) to continue the Festival, to promote an appreciation and awareness of Irish culture and to work, in concert with the Gaelic American Club, for the establishment of an Irish Cultural Center . “Feile” is an Irish word (pronounced FAY-luh) that originally meant “feast” and was chosen as the name for our charitable organization because the word now has multiple meanings connoting “festival”, “generosity” and “hospitality”, the characteristics of our heritage so prominently on display at the Festival that could be taught, enjoyed and promoted throughout the year at such a home for our heritage.
