Cead mile failte roimh. One hundred thousand wishes and welcomes to you all.
So today we are here to honor The Saint Patrick's Day Observance Committee, which I am a member of, for their hard work, more than mine, organizing the Saint Patrick's Day Parade and all the other events that they're organizing surrounding the Irish community throughout the year, and to acknowledge the Philadelphia Irish and Irish at heart for their passion and the Irish arts and culture throughout the year.
I also want to thank BOMA, Jerry Sweeney, PECO, DRPA, all the Irish organizations and leaders that stand with me here today and our own City leaders, especially Parks and Recs, for making the City shine with green this weekend.
I wish you all a happy and healthy Saint Patrick's Day weekend. I look forward to working with you in the months and years ahead.
Trina cheile a thogtar na caisleain. Together we will build castles.
With that, today we are honoring The Saint Patrick's Day Observance Association for their efforts in organizing the 244th Annual Saint Patrick's Day Parade.
