JOSEPH McGARRITY CEREMONY
Each year in the Spring the local Clan na Gael honors the memory of Joseph McGarrity,
Irish-American patriot and supporter of a United Ireland by gathering at his grave at Holy Cross
Cemetery. The 69th Pa regularly joins the ceremony to provide a flag honor guard and fire volleys.
Once again on April 27th on a beautiful sunny day the 69th sent representatives to the event.
