Event Description

A Charitable Festival

"For the most part, we are the children, grandchildren or descendants of Irish immigrants. Some of us were actually born in Ireland and some of us have been lucky enough to visit the Auld Sod but all of us have the common bond of loving and sharing our emerald Irish roots with others, We do this through song and dance and drink and by giving to those in need.

We give to local, state  and national causes and yes, to those in Ireland. Maryland was one of the first colonies in the new world to accept our ancestors.  Founded in 1634 by Cecil Calvert, the second Lord Baltimore, the land south of Pennsylvania was the first colony devoted to religious tolerance.  Times being what they were, this lasted until 1702 when catholics were disenfranchised.  This may have prompted wealthy Dr Charles Carroll, an Anglican convert to move from Ireland to acquire 2800 acres in western Maryland.  Ironically enough his cousin, also named Charles Carroll, became the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence."
