Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Club Pays a Visit to Philly’s Club

Members of Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Club traveled by bus last Sunday to Philadelphia to honor one of the major figures of the American Revolution—Commodore John Barry, father of the US Navy, who is buried at Old St. Mary’s Church in Philadelphia. It’s an annual trek over the Memorial Day weekend and they’re joined by members of the Commodore Barry Club (The Irish Center) in Philadelphia at a Mass, a wreath-laying, and for a meal and some dancing. We caught that last part in photos.
