The pipers were piping and the dancers were dancing at the Larchmont Shore Club recently, as the Sound Shore St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee presented the ceremonial sash to the 2018 parade Grand Marshal, Raymond “Doc” Kiernan, along with the official charge to lead the 7th Annual Sound Shore St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 18th. The Shamrocks and Hearts Dinner MC duties were deftly handled by newly elected Westchester County Executive George Latimer, long time Sound Shore parade supporter.
“Having served his country and his community for many years, Doc Kiernan embodies the life and sacrifice of first-responders, as well as our Irish heritage and the American immigrant experience,” said committee President Laura Murphy. “We are honored to have Doc as our Grand Marshal. This is sure to be the best Sound Shore Parade yet!”
For his choice as “Aides to the Grand Marshal,” Kiernan chose his wife Sue, and three children, Dennis, Shea and Rory.
The 7th Annual Sound Shore St. Patrick’s Day Parade steps off on Sunday, March 18th. Marchers will step off at 1:30 p.m., starting on Mamaroneck Avenue in front of Mamaroneck Avenue School in the Village. This wonderful family-friendly event celebrates Irish heritage as well as the American immigrant experience.
