The National Board wants to let you know about an event that it is hosting on Tuesday next from 5:30 to 7:30 at Harbour Lights.
This event will promote the 250 Mile Solo Run of ultra- marathoner and Black Sheep bar owner Tom McGrath in July from NYC to the US Naval Academy in Annapolis.
I was hoping that you can join us as our guests at this event which will feature the stunning backdrop of Harbour Lights, the musical talents of Donie Carroll and words from our two guest speakers the legendary Admiral J Robert Lunney, President of the Naval Guild of NY and Liam Murphy, past editor of the Hibernian Digest, noted historian and faculty at the SUNY Maritime College at Fort Schuyler, as well as Irish speaker, former Director OEM Westchester Co and retired Naval Officer and Vietnam vet.
Also on hand will be our AOH National Barry Committee chairs Jack O’Brien and John McInererny.
All of these men led the decades long effort to see Commodore John Barry elevated to his proper place in US military history.
This run will be held in conjunction with fundraisers along the route to complete the construction of the Barry Memorial, which complements the AOH successfully fundraising for the recently completed Barry Gate entrance at the Naval Academy.
Our National President Seamus Boyle and National VP Brendan Moore will be in attendance as will many members of our National, State and local AOH and LAOH.
