They have announced an Irish heritage celebration for Wednesday, March 14. Various activities will take place, some for kids.

"Last week the Irish Echo, a New York City based Irish-American newspaper, backed the cancelation of the parade in an editorial.

"The mayor did the right thing,"the editorial reads. "It's up to the broader Irish-American community to make sure no other mayors are forced to make similar decisions."

"It remains unclear exactly who is organizing Lepre-Con." Does anyone else find that odd ?

I would hope that Ray Smith would expend some journalistic effort to find out who is behind it.
