Irish Heritage Day

LEGALIZE THE IRISH shirts were spotted Sunday at the Irish Heritage Day at Ridge Road Park in Hartsdale, New York. The theme of the event, sponsored by the American-Irish Association of Westchester County, was
"Keep the Tradition Alive!"

The crowds were entertained by step-dancers from the O'Rourke Irish Dancers, and music by the Guss Hayes Band, the Chris Brown Band, Celtic Justice, the Tim Harte Band, Padraig Allen, and, of course, the Westchester County Police Emerald Society Pipes and Drums Corps. The Gus Allen Band urged everyone to Keep the Irish tradition alive by supporting the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform and the push for comprehensive immigration reform.

Enthusiastic football fans flocked around a small television set up at the concessions stand to view the World Cup final between Italy and France. The Azzurri prevailed on penalty kicks.

Congratulations to Bob Strauf and the American-Irish Association for hosting a wonderful event. They truly are keeping the tradition alive in Westchester County.

Possibly another poster ill-qualified for an EB-n visa?

No, that is wrong.

The Italians, Spanish, Dutch, English, Portugese, et al arrived long before the Irish fled their peat and mud huts.
