You don’t have to be Irish to be part of this festive St. Patrick’s Day tour and reception. Though dead men tell no tales, there are two places that we can learn much about them: the wake-house and Laurel Hill Cemetery. Join us at the latter, as we celebrate the “spirit” of St. Patrick’s Day, while honoring the heritage and accomplishments of our proudest Irish souls, now gone to their final reward. ‘Tis a festive occasion to be enjoyed by the living, for earth has no sorrows that heaven cannot heal! No St. Patrick’s Day would be complete without beer and Irish food; enjoy a sampling of both by the Kearney Kommissary at the after-tour reception in Laurel Hill’s historic Gatehouse.
The event will be led by Jerry McCormick of Six Counties’ descent, and his counterpart rebel of native Irish birth, Bill Doran. It will take place on Saturday, March 11 at 1:00pm, departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse.
The cost is $20/person; $18/students and seniors; or $17/members. Advance registration is requested.
