The building that houses the Buffalo Irish Center is 88-years-old and finding money to make major repairs was a big challenge - especially after funding from government sources was reduced.

7 Eyewitness News reporter Ed Reilly takes a closer look at the center's importance to Buffalo Irish heritage and its need for repairs.
