There was a whole lot of love in the ballroom of the Commodore John Barry Arts & Cultural Center Sunday night. A full house of friends and family members joined in honoring the 2018 Delaware Valley Irish Hall of Fame awardees Sunday night.

Also singled out for honors was Sister James Ann Feerick, IHM, who received the Commodore John Barry Award for her dedication to children as a Catholic educator and service to the Philadelphia-area Irish community.
We have a whole lot of photos to match all the love. Have a look.
