Irish Centre of Pittsburgh
If you’ve gotten lost driving back from Kennywood, you may have wandered past the long, rectangular building on a Squirrel Hill back road with the words “Irish Centre” printed in dark green letters across the gable wall. Now, the Irish Centre of Pittsburgh is for sale — at a reduced price.

The Irish Centre of Pittsburgh is on sale for $1.5 million through realty company Berkshire Hathaway. The 4.25-acre listing advertises that the property at 6886 Forward Ave. on the edge of Squirrel Hill includes a 700-person occupancy social hall, so if anyone and their 699 friends are interested in an in-ground pool, two-bedroom ranch home, and upper and lower parking lots, this property is a golden opportunity.

Viewable from the Parkway East and close to the Nine Mile Run trails and Firelane Trail in Frick Park, the Irish Centre has a history stretching back to 1966, when it was founded by Rev. Dr. Patrick McCarthy, a resident at St. Paul's Cathedral and a professor at Duquesne University.
