Tony: Breaking!!! Ian Byrne Named Kansas City St. Patrick’s Day Parade Grand Marshal!!!

In addition to the AWESOME coffee there are a great many benefits to hanging out at Eddie Delahunt’s Cafe &. Mainly, just about every Irish luminary in Kansas City stops by the place at one point or another. Just a few moments ago I had the pleasure of meeting Pete Maher, publisher of Irish Focus, who shared a bit of breaking news regarding the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day festivities.

Just last night Ian Byrne, famous front man for The Elders, was named Grand Marshal of this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

The interesting part of this news is that it wasn’t musical fame that garnered the honor for Byrne but instead the title was awarded because of his woodworking business along with his efforts among the local Irish-American business community right here in the Heartland.

All things considered, this looks like yet another blowout event for Kansas City’s favorite time of year. Eddie and I discussed the weather as a variable during the Winter season that doesn’t seem to want to end — But that’s never seemed to stop anybody from celebrating this town’s favorite party.

    I like the Elders but they are getting old for me. The Irish Fest has become a predictable street fair with a bunch of Brookside Boulevard sippers declaring their claim on the heritage of our city. Yawn…..

    The Elders were better when they were The Secrets.
