Our thanks to those who responded to our original quest to set guidelines to promote Irish
heritage, culture, and ultimately an interest in our society. They got it started and we
are thankful for their work.
Our primary focus is to promote awareness and appreciation for the contributions of the
Irish to the United States, to Texas, and to San Antonio. For this reason the Irish Cultural
Society (ICS) scholarship will target students interested in Irish culture and heritage.

The original guidelines were assembled after many hours of deliberation by:
Thomas and Elaine Hyland
Liz Smith
John Donnellen
Shirley and Peter Hynes
Nora Olivares
