Sports are a rich part of Rochester's local Irish and Celtic history,
beginning with the golden days of such groups as Rochester Harps Gaelic
Football, a member of the Gaelic Athletic Association, Scottish soccer
teams like the Thistles and Celtics, and Gaelic hurling teams that
flourished in the 1840s.
Today, we live in a community where sports of all kinds continue to
thrive and Irish participation is just as intense. And for those reasons,

past and present, marching in the 2006 Parade.
