Killarney House Gives Back in Big Way for 20th Anniversary Month

Killarney HouseThe numbers are in! Thanks to the generosity of diners, Killarney House raised almost $8,000 for local charities, including $3,860 in matching funds provided by The Irish Restaurant Company, which includes Killarney House, Davidsonville’s only Irish pub, located at 584 West Central Avenue.

The fundraisers became a key component of Killarney House Irish Pub’s 20th-anniversary celebration in September 2021. “Our success — especially surviving a pandemic — is due to our customers’ support,” said Anthony Clarke, co-owner of The Irish Restaurant Company. “This milestone anniversary gave us the opportunity to give back to our community.”

Throughout September, Killarney House hosted a Fundraising Dinner for each charity. Guests supported the fundraiser by ordering from a special $25 three-course menu, which included a starter, entrée, and dessert, with $10 from each plate going directly to the charity. To show his appreciation for two decades in business, co-owner Michael Galway committed to matching customer donations for these special fundraisers in September.

The money will be divided between seven charities that have local ties with Killarney House:

  • Rebuilding Together Anne Arundel County – Repairing homes, revitalizing communities, rebuilding lives
  • Anne Arundel County First Responders – The people who place themselves in harm’s way to assist residents
  • Making Cards for Our Troops – Sending holiday packages/cards to American troops overseas
  • Londontowne Symphony Orchestra – Bringing symphonic music to the community and supporting education
  • Lace ’Em Up for Libby – Giving kids a chance to live without cancer
  • Navy SEAL Foundation – Improving the health and welfare of SEALS and their families
  • EMBOLC – Bringing hope to people who suffer from mental illness and their loved ones
