Would you recommend Irish Cultural Centre of New England?

by Clare O. (September 16, 2013)
I followed the instructions on this site to volunteer at the Irish Cultural Center and also followed up that contact with an email to their staff. Never received a reply, nor even an acknowledgement of my interest. For an organization that, according to this site, needs assistance, they are not very responsive to those who might want to help them. I shall take my exceptional Microsoft Office Suite skills elsewhere!!
