  1. With a town as IRISH as Oswego, I, personally, thank the Hibernians for taking over this joyous event! In Ireland they wonder why we celebrate so boldly something that they take for granted. America is filled with MANY nationalities, and in celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, communities acknowledge this important population that brought much to the nation. Think of Boston without the Irish! And of course, Syracuse and Oswego! Born and raised in an “Irish neighborhood” in Syracuse, it makes me proud that Oswego respects their Irish settlers! Ancestry just notified me that although I thought I wasn’t Irish (English, Welsh and Scot, but no Irish I was told) I AM Irish. I just knew it. Can’t love Ham and Cabbage this much without it being in the blood! :0)
