In 1978, the Ancient Order of Hibernians and Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians undertook a campaign to establish an endowment at Notre Dame for illuminating Irish-American history. Thanks to this support, the Cushwa Center administers a variety of programs promoting the study of the Irish experience in Ireland and America, including the annual Hibernian Lecture.
