Exploring Victor Herbert's roots, this chapter emphasizes that while Herbert enthusiastically embraced American music and culture, he also promoted Irish music at every opportunity. He programmed arrangements of Irish folk songs and worked on behalf of Irish causes. He also joined the society of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick in the City of New York and The American-Irish Historical Society. Herbert's Irish operetta Hearts of Erin, or as it became known, Eileen, is Herbert's most powerful statement on behalf of the Irish cause at this time.

Keywords:   Ireland, St. Patrick, Eileen, operetta
