Dateline Irish on Echoes of Erin

with Diane Byrnes

Hello Friends,


Attached is Dateline Irish for July 18 with many new listings.  It sure feels good to have many new items to list, this means life has opened up.  There is much discussion ongoing about getting vaccinated for Covid.  I am vaccinated.  Typically I do not take the various shots that are available – flu, shingles, and others.  However Covid was so different and I know so many folks who contracted it and were quite ill; others I do not know had passed away.  So for my safety, for my family, and for my neighbors safety I chose to get vaccinated.  Now there is a new strain, that could be more deadly – for you and the rest of us, do consider getting the vaccine.  You not only affect YOU, you also affect ME.  Jim Lamb has a good post on FB today, try and read it.


This week and next the sponsor for The Ireland Report is Jack Goodrich, Attorney At Law.  My thanks to the Ladies AOH St. Brigid Division 4 in the North Hills for the past two weeks of sponsorship for The Ireland Report.  And I am happy to report that I do have a sponsor for Dateline Irish for July 18 & 25.  Maybe life is beginning to fall into place, for all of us.


It seems like our St. Patrick’s Day Parade is a GO!  A Press Release went out this week stating that fact.  The first Fundraiser will take place on Thursday, August 19th at Mullaney’s Harp & Fiddle with Mike Gallagher and Johnny Gallagher performing from 6PM.  The Button Party will take place on Friday, September 3rd at McFadden’s over on the North Shore beginning at 5pm.  Usually you can purchase a Button at the event, or they may be for sale at the first fundraiser on August 19th.  Right now I do not know, I am going from past experience.  After not being able to Parade the past two March’s, this September date, 9/18, will be a glorious time!


Come October PICT Classic Theater presents its 25th Anniversary Season with several excellent productions in the works.
