Co-Chair Kathleen Walsh D’Arcy
 said: “A theme of St. Pat’s For All is ‘Cherishing all the children of the nation equally,’ which is taken from the Irish Proclamation of 1916. We are thrilled to have so many youth groups and school bands from the local community including Shannon Gaels Gaelic Sports and Music groups and the Swim Strong Foundation.
Co-Chair Brendan Fay
said : “St. Pat’s for All is about extending the warm hand of welcome. Reflecting the best of the New York spirit and of modern Ireland we’re delighted that groups excluded from parades in Boston and Staten Island are making their way to Sunnyside ”.
