"Roll Me Over in the Clover"

I named this parade, "The Wearin of the Green," in tribute to its anonymous author during the Irish Rebellion in 1798 and to further the beauty of the color - green. If you can't join us on the route, join us on WBRZ.com and ParadeGroup.com as we "stream" the ceremonies at 9:40 AM. For many years the spectators and participants dodged the rain, cold and flurries. According to our "Killarney Grand Marshals" of the past, the parade day weather often replicates the weather in "The Old Country." This has truly turned into a Hammett-Shingleton event with family members shouldering the burden to recognize our heritage in a great city. A special salute to our Grand Marshal - the late, Sgt. Maj. Hillar C. Moore, Jr. (USMCR) Ret. and... his family
