Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  Mayor Carlo DeMaria, alongside elected officials and community members, hosted the City of Everett’s Irish American Heritage Month Flag Raising and Celebration. The event opened with a prayer from Father Adriano Tezone from St. Anthony’s Parish in Everett. Attendees also heard remarks from Mayor DeMaria and State Rep. Joe McGonagle on the importance of Irish Americans to Everett’s history and recognizing their contributions. After the remarks, Ireland’s national anthem, “Amhrán na bhFiann” (“The Soldier’s Song”), was played while the Irish flag was raised to fly high at City Hall.

  Following the ceremony, the celebration continued at the Community Reception at Stewart’s Pub with food, drinks and popular Irish tunes performed by the Boston Rovers. Attendees enjoyed a delectable Irish menu that included items such as homemade mini-corned beef sliders, Irish sausage rolls, smoked salmon on mini-potato pancakes, an Irish cheese board and mini-Guinness chocolate cupcakes for dessert.

  This event continued the City’s “Everett for Everyone” initiative to ensure that residents of all backgrounds feel welcome and are recognized in Everett. Mayor DeMaria would like to thank everyone who made this event possible and all who celebrated Irish American Heritage Month with us in the City of Everett.

Elected officials, City of Everett employees and community members braved the unfavorable weather to gather at Everett City Hall to raise the Irish flag in celebration of Irish American Heritage Month.
