This weekend marks a big weekend for celebrating the Irish. Monday is St. Patrick’s Day and the fun starts Friday with parties, a Mass and performances. Saturday is the big parade, and this year, Irene O’Connor will be among the hundreds of marchers as Hartford town parade marshal.
Kara and I were the “persons of the year” in 2005, and still have our sashes from that honor.
On Sunday, the O’Hartford 5K race brings runners from all over. On Monday, more than 1,000 people will attend the Archbishop’s Annual St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast at the Connecticut Convention Center.
