A note from the publisher, Max Sparber:

My name is Max Sparber, and I am an award-winning Minnesota journalist and editor with 25 years experience, including having written for the Star Tribune, City Pages, The Guardian, and MinnPost, where I had my own column.

Additionally, I am proudly Irish-American. My biological mother was Patricia Monaghan, an American-born citizen of Ireland and the author of Celtic Mythology and Folklore. I have been an active participant in the Irish-American community my entire adult life.

Now I am the publisher of a new resource for the Twin Cities Irish community, TC Irish. At the moment, TC Irish consists of this website, which includes a comprehensive community calendar (submit your events here). We also have an email version of the Irish events Calendar available for free and delivered to your inbox every Thursday (subscribe here).

This site will will soon include a community guide (submit your business or buy ads here), which will exist in both digital and published versions and I plan to update once per year.

Additionally, in the coming month, I hope to expand TC Irish to include a monthly lifestyle tabloid, available for free at local pubs and Irish businesses, that will include the community calendar, as well as stories about local Irish events and subjects of interest to the Irish-American community.
