🥔 The Montréal Irish Had a Hard Journey 🍀

At the heart of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in our city is the entrenched Montréal Irish community. Now part of the very foundation of Montreal, the Irish population came from humble, and painful beginnings. Former Queen of the Parade Samantha Cambridge and former Princess Catherine Polson give us the history behind the hardship, and also currently why “Montreal is so Irish”.
