Administrative history

The St. Ann's Young Men's Society was founded in Griffintown, Montreal, in 1885. The Society was located on Ottawa Street and contained a library, gymnasium, and concert hall, and had programs in theater, athletics, and debating. The St. Ann's Young Men's Society participated in the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade.

Custodial history

This fonds was transferred to Special Collections by Dr. Michael Kenneally, Principal of the School of Canadian Irish Studies at Concordia University, on November 16, 2016. The material was originally donated to the School of Canadian Irish Studies by Dennis Dougherty, a former resident of Griffintown.
