One More St. Patrick’s Blast

The Irish celebration of culture and fun ended “early” this year; it lasted only 28 days, starting with the passing of the sash and soda bread bale-off on February 28, and ending on March 23. The final Saint Patrick’s celebration in Patchogue was held at St. Francis de Sales parish hall on the evening of March 23. Some of the entertainment included Irish dancers. Two of the dancers from Mulvihill-Lynch Studio of Irish Dance, the Skaalerud sisters, Erin and Mary, with Pastor Tom Pers are picured with committee members Bonnie Bossert (left) and Ann Boyce (right).
