March 2019

  1. Irish Heritage Quebec will present the following activity in McMahon Hall, 1145 De Salaberry in Quebec City. We hope to see members and guests in great numbers.  Refreshments will be served and parking stubs for Îlot St-Patrick will be validated.

Monday, March 11 at 7:30 p.m.- Samantha Bilodeau, a graduate of Laval University and a Gaelic Football player with Les Patriotes de Québec, will give a presentation entitled Between Memory and History: Connecting the Irish Past between Shannon and Valcartier.

  1. The first draw for a 2019 calendar of the Société historique de Québec was held at our last activity on February 11. The lucky winner was Elva McGaughey, a resident of Kingston, Ontario.  Another calendar will be drawn on March 11 among all members of Irish Heritage Quebec at that date.  If you have not yet sent in your renewal, please do so before March 11 or at presentation.
  2. Irish Heritage Quebec will participate in the 2019 Défilé de la Saint-Patrick de Québec on Saturday March 23, 2019. We will have a classroom in Saint Patrick’s High School in which our marchers may gather.  We will march behind the New York Police Department Pipes and Drums. 

N.B.   If you plan to participate in the parade, please inform Irish Heritage Quebec of your name and the number of persons with you.  You must be on site by 13:00.
