19th Annual Staten Ireland Irish Fair

A two-day celebration of Irish culture, music and heritage, with live traditional music, pipe and drum bands, food and games and activities for the wee people (our beloved children). Mass will be celebrated on Sunday, Thanks to the over 6,000 friends who joined in the fun last year. Our annual Irish gathering continues to grow and becomes more successful each time we get together. Our committee of volunteers have been expanding and bringing new energetic ideas to the front lines.

There is something for everyone at our festival with local & international artists playing traditional Irish & pub music live on 2 stages, The Tinker’s Shopping Village, a vast array of refreshments and the Traditional Sunday Catholic Mass. It looks like this year is lining up to be our biggest and best yet.

Local Irish dance schools, such as Mrs. Rosemary’s & Forest Haven Center For Dance, will be on hand to do some jigs and reels for the crowds.

We have Traditional Bagpipe bands featuring our local favorites The Richmond County Pipes & Drums and The Staten Island Pipes & Drums along with many others.

Our lovely Fair Hostess Fiona Molloy, a minstrel girl in her own right, will be introducing some of the hottest Irish music performers from all over the globe.

Click on the Entertainers and Schedule tabs to see who is playing and when.

Land of Leprechauns is a play center for the wee ones.
Entry to Land of Leprechauns requires an additional charge at admission.

The Tinker’s Shopping Village always has a great array of Irish imports and Irish themed gifts.

We also have some of the best festival food on the East Coast, with local vendors and some traveling from NYC, Jersey Shore and Hunter Mountain.

​We welcome all Staten Island Schools and local Not for Profit Organizations that wish to partner with us for the Fair.

Greenville, NY St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Greetings from The AOH “Mass Rock” Division 2 of Greene County, NY. We hope to see many of you when the weather breaks for the many Irish Themed events in East Durham and The Greater Greene County area. We have a request we hope some of you will take us up on. In recent years our membership has dwindled some so this year our main objective is to increase our membership and hope to continue to do so each year going forward. We have not marched in the Greenville St. Patrick’s Day Parade put on by The Greenville Irish-American Club for some time now but plan to do so this year as a reminder that we are still here and hope to possibly draw some interest from prospective members in the community. We are a small group and are request is that any of our fellow brothers and sisters from neighboring divisions will join us on our march. I have contacted The Greenville Irish-American Club and they have given us permission to use vehicles behind our marchers so our more senior members can participate as well. The parade starts at 11:00am on March 18th from St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church on Route 81 in Greenville. As a bonus, The Greenville Irish-American Club put on a reception after the parade at The Church Hall which has in the past included Irish Dancers, pipers, and other Irish entertainment. Please spread the word and help us make a proud Irish showing which will be much appreciated. I hope I’m not spilling the beans here, but rumor has it that there is some realignment going on and our division may become part of the district that now houses Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga, Watervliet, and Troy so this would be a great way to get acquainted as well as re-acquainted with our brothers and sisters to our north. Also, if this rumor turns out to be true, we would be ecstatic. We hope some of you can make it, but if not, The Mass Rock Division wishes all a Happy and Holy St. Patrick’s Day. For any questions, comments or more information please email us at
Yours in Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity,
James (Jimmy) Patrick Cuffe
President “Mass Rock” Division 2 Greene County, NY
