Erin go Bragh!

There was much wearin’ of the green last Friday at City Hall when Mayor Gavin Newsom and his Office of Protocol declared Irish Heritage Week in San Francisco with the raising of the Republic of Ireland’s tricolor flag.

The reception celebrated all things Irish -- from the SF Gaelic Athletic Association’s new hurling field on Treasure Island and the 25th anniversary of the SF-Cork Sister City relationship as well as the 158th St. Patrick’s Day Parade which kicks-off Saturday at 11:30 a.m.
