Letter from our President

Dear Friends,


As President of the Council of Irish Associations of Greater Bergen County, I’m pleased to announce that Kieran Lynch, President of the Bergen Irish Association, has been named Grand Marshal for the 40th Annual Bergen County St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The parade will be held on Sunday, March 13, 2022. The Council looks forward to the parade, a proud tradition of honoring St. Patrick and the Irish people of Bergen County, following two years of a postponement and a 2021 virtual parade due to COVID-19.


This being a unique year, the Council is recognizing our Aides to the Grand Marshal in 2020, as well as honoring Aides to the Grand Marshal for 2022 that have been first responders in their respective fields throughout the pandemic. Collectively, we look forward to honoring this group as they march down
Washington Avenue on March 13th.

Halfway to
St. Patrick's Day
