National Irish American Heritage Month

The month of March was officially designated National Irish American Heritage Month by Congress in 1991, and each year the current President issues a proclamation commemorating the occasion. This year, President Trump made his proclamation on March 1. “From our four Irish-born Founding Fathers to Thomas Francis Meagher, the Irish revolutionary who became an American hero after leading the Irish Brigade during the Civil War, Irish Immigrants have shaped our history in enduring ways.” Read his whole proclamation here, and then be ready to celebrate the Irish yourself on March 17th!!!
