The incoming president of the Irish American Society in Mineola, Long Island, Patrick Kerins, announced that the annual St. Patrick’s Parade, which has been held in Garden City for over 30 years, is taking up a new route through Mineola.
“After many successful years in Garden City we are pleased to bring the parade to Mineola where our center is located”, said Kerins, who is also this year’s parade chairman.
 
“The parade will be held on Sunday, March 4 and step off at 1:00 p.m.” Kerins continued. “It will begin where it used to end behind the County Courthouse on Old Country Road.  Marchers will proceed north on County Seat Drive to Old Country Road where they will turn left.

“At Mineola Boulevard the parade will turn north into Mineola.  Marchers will continue to Jericho Turnpike and will turn right onto the turnpike.  The reviewing stand will be just east of the firehouse and the parade will end just one block south of our center at Jericho Turnpike and Willis Avenue.  We are very excited to bring the parade to our hometown and look forward to a great day.”
 
The parade will be led by grand marshal Betty McLoughlin, the immediate past president of the Society.  She will be accompanied by aides Mary P. Coyne, Aileen Scott, Sean Treanor and Jeff Clark.
 
“I’m looking forward to a wonderful day.  There will be many marchers and bands to join in the celebration,” said McLoughlin.
