The Sons of Ireland, founded in 2002, is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing awareness and assistance to worthy organizations in Monmouth County. The organization is dedicated to brotherhood, family, charity and community.

It started simply enough. A group of 13 friends came together to take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean on New Year’s Day to raise money for the education of children who lost a parent on 9/11 in New York.

Since 2002, the Plunge has raised over $750,000 for local charities in Monmouth County. Our Board of Trustees choose beneficiaries based upon need and the impact our donations will make to the local community, and 100% of the proceeds go to those beneficiaries.

Please make the Plunge a Tradition for you.
