Mayor Bloomberg apologizes for drunken Irish comments - SEE VIDEOS & POLL


Adrian Flannelly, host of a Irish American radio show and Bloomberg’s Irish liaison, believes Bloomberg’s comments were taken out of context. He said, “It would be sinister to think otherwise.  We are a nation of wisecrackers—that’s what we do—and it was strictly in that sense.”
Bloomberg had been addressing a crowd of about 100 people marking the launch of  the book “Celebrating 250 Years of the New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade.” Also present was the grand marshal of this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade Mary Higgins Clark, Irish Consul General Noel Kilkenny  and Director General of the American Irish Historical Society Dr. Kevin Cahill.
