For those who cannot march with Daltaí in New Jersey on Sunday, March 5, 2000, join An t-Úll Mór in New York City. A contingent of Irish language students, teachers, and friends, we will show the flag (the tricolor, of course) for the Irish language and culture as we march through two of the most Irish neighborhoods in New York.

Although we will have a number of fluent speakers, we welcome anyone who supports the language. Bí linn agus fáilte!

The staging area for the Queens St. Patrick’s Parade is at 43rd Street and Skillman Avenue. Our position in the line of march will be available at the registration area, if you do not see our great new banner. Or watch for us along the parade route.

The parade proceeds east along Skillman Avenue to 57th St., then South to Woodside Avenue, where it disbands at 61st St.

Parade goers may take the 7 Train to the 40th Street Station in Queens, then walk two blocks north to Skillman Avenue. The 7 Train and the LIRR can both be gotten at the parade’s end near 61st Street. For those driving, parking will be available in areas to the north of 43rd and Skillman, esp. 37th Ave. between 43 and 48th St.)

Fáilte faoi leith roimh pháistí/Special welcome for children! Echoing the parade’s theme, borrowed from the 1916 Proclamation, “Cherishing all the children of the nation equally,” a contingent of children will lead off the parade. Face-painting will be available at Tornsey Park before the parade start. Bread and Puppet Theatre will be there with dozens of oversize puppets. (More volunteers are needed to carry, pull and push them through the streets – call 718-390-3542. You cannot take them home.)

Rumors about the First Lady and sundry other dignitaries are true.

Tuar maith dúinn réamhfhaisnéis na haimsire ar an teilifís. Tá áthas ar lucht an Úill Mhóir as a bheith páirteach sa mhórshiúl in éineacht leis na ceithre scór meitheal eile a bhéas ann. An Ghaeilge abú! Na Gaeil agus a gcairde go brách!

The parade starts at 1:00. Tosnaíonn an mórshiúl ar 1:00. Oops.
