Welcome to the Shamrocks Motorcycle Club - Connecticut Chapter.
We were formed in the summer of 2006 and take part in events held throughout New England and beyond. Originally founded in Vermont as a club for Federal Law Enforcement Officers, the Shamrocks MC is now a motorcycle club with membership containing and open to all US law enforcement officers without regard to level of government. The Shamrocks MC is a nonprofit organization designed to promote brotherhood between all members of our nation's law enforcement community. The Shamrocks MC is also committed to the service and support of organizations that assist with law enforcement, veteran, and select charity issues, as well as supporting the efforts of other allied clubs. We are bonded by history and united by principles.
The Shamrocks MC, Connecticut Chapter is a not-for-profit organization pending status registration with the Internal Revenue Service under the provisions of IRS Code, Section 501(c)(3). We are a non-territorial club and do not support other clubs in commercial enterprise. We support several different charity causes which include, but are not limited to, Law Enforcement, Veteran's Affairs, Children, Animals, and Medical Research and Treatment. In addition to self-initiated cause support, the Shamrocks MC is very active in supporting other clubs with their charity efforts.
Originally, the membership of the Shamrocks MC was comprised solely of Federal Law Enforcement Officers. As time went by we felt the need to recognize our professional bond with all levels of government law enforcement. Today the Shamrocks MC welcomes all U.S. Law Enforcement Officers, not just Federal, into it's ranks. No matter what background our members possess one can be rest assured that if you see a big white shamrock on their back, you are looking at one of this country's finest professionals.
While not a club requirement, most of our members claim and are proud of their Irish heritage.
