Join us for an historical day beginning with a Mass of Thanksgiving at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth Avenue and 50th St. where immediately following the Mass there will be a Grand Procession to the Irish Consulate located on Park Ave. and 51st Street. The Consulate will be the site of the commemorative reading of the 1916 Proclamation of the Irish Republic.
Tim McSweeney, NYAOH President has requested that all AOH Divisions, who plan on attending this event, come in “full regalia” which includes the wearing of ceremonial sashes and the display of division, county and state officer medallions. Division and county board banners are encouraged along with US and Irish national flags for the procession through the streets of Manhattan.
There will be a reception at the Irish Consulate which is by invitation only. However, the NY County Board will arrange several “after party” locations for AOH members at participating restaurants and pubs in the immediate area. Further details will be shared as they become available. Please contact Tom Beirne, NYAOH District 4 Director and Event Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and to provide approximate numbers for those attending the Mass.
