Jones, Patricia Anne
Vice President of the Irish American Association of Northwest Jersey for the third year, Patricia Anne Jones is honored to represent the club and the members who have taught her so much about Ireland.
A former AT&T employee and current yoga and tai chi instructor, Jones is a second generation Irish American with roots in County Tipperary. She has been to Ireland three times.
“I am extremely grateful to belong to an Irish American club that takes keeping the culture alive very seriously. Our club sponsors music sessions, concerts and ceili dances every month. I rarely miss one,” she says.
A fan of Irish history, Jones says she is “grateful for the love of people, the music, the poetry, the humor, and last but not least the Irish Mass.”
Married with three children and five grandchildren, Jones asks, “Being Irish – is there anything better?” “If I had to sum up in one word how my Irish heritage makes me feel, it’s grateful.”
