Irish Person of the Year 2024

DeeAnn Martin has been named as our 2024 Irish Person of the Year. Congratulations and well deserved, Dee!

DeeAnn Martin

Upon moving to the Madison area in 2015, Dee joined the Dane County Shamrock Club right away. Of Irish and Scottish descent, Dee jumped in with both feet, becoming Board Secretary, and later Trustee and Facebook Administrator. Dee shares her love of all things Irish with just about everyone, inviting others to join the DCSC, and you'll see Dee helping at all our major events. In her work life, Dee is a nationally certified professional American Sign Language / English interpreter. She works for Purple Communications, Inc., interpreting between people who are Deaf, and those who can hear, both over video and out in the community. Dee believes in communication access for all, and loves helping people who don't share a language understand one another. Dee loves Ireland, especially the people, and has visited three times (so far). Dee enjoys hiking, forest bathing, photography, traveling, and reading with her cat on her lap.
