Listen to Ireland House’s Podcast on the History of New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade

March 14, 2011

Glucksman Ireland House has created "Memories of the New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade," a podcast to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the event:

The podcast, part of Glucksman Ireland House’s Oral History of Irish America Project, includes excerpts from interviews with 10 Irish and Irish American New Yorkers—including New York City Police Commissioner and former parade Grand Marshall Ray Kelly, parade participant Joan Dolan, and parade historian John Ridge—all with different experiences and relationships to the parade.

The podcast will also be featured as part of “Ireland America: The Ties That Bind,” an exhibition at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center (Oenslager Gallery, 40 Lincoln Center Plaza). Curated by NYU Professor Marion R. Casey, the exhibition will be on view from March 14 through August 13, 2011.

This exhibition is part of “Imagine Ireland,” an initiative of Culture Ireland, which is a year-long season of Irish Arts in the United States in 2011.
