Construction on The Irish Cultural Center's Research Library Delayed After Death of General Contractor

Ahern says that Double AA Builders of Scottsdale will now oversee the project. The 15,000-square-foot research library, originally scheduled to be completed in January, will house more than 6,000 books and be used for those of Irish descent to research their genealogy.
While Ahern says that a revised timetable for the building's opening hasn't been determined, he's hoping that "the library will be substantially complete by Saint Patrick's Day" in time for the center's annual festival and parade.
"It won't be done by then, but it should look like a library," Ahern says.
