2008 Irishman of the Year

3/15/2008:

This Saturday marks the much-debated “official” St. Patrick’s Day in 2008.

We don’t care up in these parts, because Hoboken always has their party the first Saturday of March, and NYC has their parade on the 17th regardless.

Either way, Billy Barron is being honored as the 2008 Irishman of the Year over at the Elks Club this Saturday, March 15th at 7pm.

We ordered out a feed which indeed we did need, And we finished it with speed but we still felt slack. Johnny McAdoo turned as blue as a Jew, And a plate of Irish stew he soon put out of sight. He shouted out, “encore”, with a roar, for some more, That he’d never felt before such a keen appetite. He ordered eggs and ham, bread and jam, what a cram, But him we couldn’t tram though we tried our level best.

We told him to give o’er but he swore he could lower Twice as much again and more before he had his fill. He nearly sucked a trough full of broth; said McGrath, “He’ll devour the tablecloth if you don’t hold him in.” When the waiter brought the charge, McAdoo felt so large, He began to… Read more »
