Montana and Irish-American history are closely woven together, with the state seeing a large influx of Irish immigrants during in the later parts of the 19th century and into the 20th century.

"We know that a lot of the Irish that came to Montana came from the Western Seaboard of Ireland, and we know that for the most part were Irish speakers, so they were post-famine immigrants that left Ireland, so when they came here to Montana, they came steeped into Irish tradition," said Ciara Ryan with the Montana History Foundation.
