Brendan Gill Recognized as One of New Jersey’s 2019 Irish Leaders

New Jersey’s Leaders 2019

St. Patrick’s Day is once again upon us with its month long festivities. To help celebrate the occasion, presents its annual and profiled list of New Jersey’s Irish American leaders and activists as a salute to the holiday and as a harbinger of long awaited springtime.

The annual tribute to the ‘Irish High Holy Days’ is an acknowledgement of accomplishments, numerous contributions and community service.

Once again, the list includes both veterans of previous compilations and quite a few newcomers, as well. Collectively, they have all demonstrated a commitment to their Irish American heritage.

The updated list is compiled to commemorate the 84th Anniversary of the Newark St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the oldest Irish American march in New Jersey (1936-present), interrupted only by WWII (1943-46).
