Paddy was tooling along the road one fine day when the local policeman, a friend of his, pulled him over.
“What’s wrong, Seamus?” Paddy asked.
“Well didn’t ya know, Paddy, that your wife fell out of the car about five miles back?” said Seamus.
“Ah, praise the Almighty!” Paddy replied with relief. “I thought I’d gone deaf!”
Leprechaun stories, outrageous pub tales, fighting Irish gags, good luck, and some St. Patrick yarns are boasted with ethnic flair.
Saint Patrick’s Day parade in NY is well known in the world. In a typical year, 150,000 marchers participate in it, including bands, firefighters, military and police groups, county associations, emigrant societies, and social and cultural clubs, and 2 million spectators line the streets. The parade marches up 5th Avenue in Manhattan and is always led by the U.S. 69th Infantry Regiment. New York politicians – or those running for office – are always found prominently marching in the parade. Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch once proclaimed himself “Ed O’Koch” for the day, and he continues to don an Irish sweater and march every year up until 2003, even though he is no longer in office.
The parade is organized and run by the Ancient Order of Hibernians. For many years, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade was the primary public function of the organization. On occasion the order has appointed controversial Irish republican figures (some of whom were barred from the U.S.) to be its Grand Marshal.
