Dermot’s mother Mary Holt Moore was also there. She is a Gaelic scholar, past Grand Marshal of the NYC St Patrick’s Day Parade and a direct descendant of the leader of the Wicklow rebels in 1798, General Joseph Holt. She named Dermot in honor of 1916 leader Sean Mac Diarmada and her Uncle Sam O’Reilly fought in the GPO. She shared the Gaelic language with us as well as some of her experiences.
It was a great way to start 2016!
