The Irish Cultural Hall of Fame was approved by the North American Feis Commission in 1978 to memorialize those who have given unselfishly of themselves to promote Irish culture through their leadership and participation.

The public is invited to propose candidates for the Hall of Fame.  A Screening committee of seven persons appointed by the NAFC evaluates all candidates proposed for the Hall of Fame and presents the names and qualifications of those they consider worthy to the full NAFC membership for their vote.
