IRISH HERITAGE DAY OF SAINT-COLOMBAN – AUGUST 29th 2015

Today there are few Irish in Saint-Colomban and it is generally French speaking. However, the town has always been fiercely proud of its original Irish Heritage. Of course, as you all know, a few years ago, some of us descendants of the original Irish settlers restored the old Irish cemetery.

Now on August 29th 2015, the entire town of Saint-Colomban will be celebrating their Irish roots with the 1st ever “Irish Heritage Day of Saint-Colomban” and everyone is invited – you don’t have to be a descendant; or even Irish, to attend this fun filled outdoor event.

Dr Ray Bassett, the Irish Ambassador to Canada has confirmed his attendance; the GAA will be demonstrating Hurling; the Town will provide live Irish Music and a whole lot of other activities are planned.

So mark your calendars for August 29th and come out and enjoy the day.

We do have a FaceBook event site, where you could register your attendance at: https://www.facebook.com/events/1022758927743416/ (https://www.facebook.com/events/1022758927743416/)
