Gaelic Society

Gaelic Society members march in the St. Patrick's Day Parade

Most notable is this group’s participation in New York City’s annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, during which the Gaelic Society marches down Fifth Avenue with the Manhattan College Alumni Society and the Pipes and Drums band.

The Gaelic Society organizes all the preparation for the College’s involvement in the parade and distributes College-branded sashes, scarves, and other items to Manhattan College students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends who wish to march. Its members also organize a St. Patrick’s Day luncheon in March, as well as an Irish Night — a celebration of food, music and other cultural traditions. This takes place during the spring semester.
