Press & Media


The St. Patrick’s Association of St. Paul is so incredibly honored by the Irish Consul General, Kevin Byrne, and Vice Counsel Sarah Keating for their kind words and praise for our COVID-conscious St. Patrick’s Day Celebration of 2021. We share and echo their sentiments that even though our celebration is different this year, it will nonetheless represent what St. Patrick’s Day truly stands for—family, heritage, connections, and community. 

We are proud to serve the residents of Saint Paul and share our Irish-American culture. This year’s commemorative St. Patrick’s Day button pays tribute to that shared culture with the colors of both the Irish and American flags. 

We thank the Irish Consulate for their time preparing such a meaningful and thoughtful message. We look forward to the day we get to march down the streets of St. Paul in the nation’s greatest St. Patrick’s Day Parade again and see all of your smiling faces again. With fingers crossed, we pray Kevin and Sarah may one day be able to join us and see St. Paul in all her green Irish glory. Slainte!
