"Cead Mille Failte"
Welcome to the new online home of the MacSwiney Club. The MacSwiney Club evolved from Camp 100, Clan Na Gael and was officially organized in Jenkintown in 1935 although minutes bearing the name go back to at least January 1926. It was named in honor of Terence MacSwiney (1879-1920), Irish patriot, statesman, and martyr.
Originally located at 222 Old York Road, the club purchased its current facilities at 510 Greenwood Avenue from the Loyal Order of Moose, and moved there in 1946.
For many years the MacSwiney Club was home to the Timoney Irish Dancers, and Irish music and dancing were regular events. We hope that this website will provide a place to share memories of the club – keeping the spirit alive. What ever your story may be, the MacSwiney Club has a deep and rich history that we want to share and we hope you enjoy!
Please check the calendar regularly for listings of upcoming events at the Club and throughout the area.
