Hosted by The Hibernian Benevolent Society of Atlanta
Join the Hibernian Benevolent Society of Atlanta and Consul General of Ireland, Shane Stephens, for this very popular annual event. Experience an authentic "Irish Tea", with hot tea, and delicious homemade Irish breads and scones. The Hibernian Benevolent Society of Atlanta was founded in 1858, is Atlanta's oldest Irish organization, and promotes Irish culture throughout Atlanta. This is a great opportunity to learn more about Ireland and Irish culture.
