The Irish American Cultural Institute, or IACI, is an American cultural group founded in Saint Paul, Minnesota by Dr. Eoin McKiernan in 1962, and headquartered there for years. It specialises in recording aspects of Irish (and particularly Irish-American) culture. It also sponsors research and awards prizes in the field of Irish Studies. It also awards the Annie Moore Award, which is given "to an individual who has made significant contributions to the Irish and/or Irish American community and legacy."[1]

The Institute is now based in Morristown, New Jersey.[2]


It publishes:

  • Éire-Ireland, a learned journal, published seasonally.[3]
  • Ducas, a newsletter


Its current patron is Mary McAleese, the former President of Ireland.
