The Irish Club and its Irish American Home building in Glastonbury, Connecticut, is in dire need of some home comforts, most especially the financial form of it.

Members have started a gofundme page in an effort to keep the doors open and sustain the many events within its walls.

"Our Irish Home is in dire need of critical repairs to its major infrastructure, including its heating and cooling system, upstairs kitchen and bar, and downstairs kitchen and bar," said a statement on the Irish american Home Society web page.

"We also must bring the accessibility of our club into the 21st century to ensure all members, current and future can enjoy our Home for generations to come. Please consider giving any amount you can. We will use every single contribution to ensure our club remains open to serve you and to serve future generations with the same spirit and vision as the day it was opened."

"This place is our home, it is the reason for the Saint Patrick's Day Parade in Hartford, the Feis, Oireachtas has been in Hartford the last several years, our GAA club runs out of this place, said one of the funding organizers, Brendan Sullivan.
