Along with painting nights, Bingo is topping the list for Irish groups looking to raise money for their organizations. We investigated one Bingo event this week. Won zip. Had a great time.
On St. Patrick’s Day, Irish Thunder Pipe Major Cullen Kirkpatrick leads a St. Patrick’s Day parade. That’s not unusual. What’s unusual is that it’s a little south of Philadelphia—about 1,400 miles south.
Hundreds turned out to watch the parade pass them by on Fayette Street. It was cold, but everyone was smiling.
The late AOH legend Joe Montgomery was devastated when he lost his 100-year-old blackthorn walking stick, a gift from his wife’s father, at the Philadelphia St. Patrick’s Day Parade years ago. This year, just a few months after his death, it turned up.
The Brehons know how to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! We have photos from their party at Tir na nOg last week.
