Irish Fellowship Club Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day 2016

For over 100 years, the Irish Fellowship Club’s St. Patrick’s Day Dinner has been an important part of Chicago’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration, bringing together the city’s Irish-American community and local, national, and international dignitaries. As a member of the Irish Fellowship Club, Kevin Conlon has been part of this tradition for over 30 years, but this year’s dinner stood out for many reasons. Not only was it Kevin’s first St. Patrick’s Day Dinner as president of the Irish Fellowship Club, the Club was honored to have Illinois House Speaker Michael J. Madigan and DePaul College Prep President Mary Dempsey as featured guests.
