Grosse Île and the Irish Memorial National Historic Site of Canada

What's New

2015 Season

The Grosse Île and the Irish Memorial National Historic Site team is working tirelessly to put together outstanding programming for 2015. Check our website regularly for more details!

Irish Traditional Dance Performances

In partnership with Parks Canada, two Irish dance performances will be held Sunday August 2 and 16, 2015, at the Grosse Île and the Irish Memorial National Historic Site. Dancers from the Québec-based L’héritage d’Erin dance troupe will present both traditional and modern dance steps. What an excellent opportunity to discover the major contribution of the Irish community to Canadian culture and pay respects to the many Irish immigrants who landed on this former quarantine island in the 19th century.
