Irish 2000 lost one of its founders last night, with the passing of Tim Nelligan. Mr. Nelligan was the head of the grounds committee for over 10 years and a Board member and Treasurer for 12. He was one of the driving forces behind the creation and operation of Irish 2000 because of his fierce love for Irish music, history, language and culture.
We at Irish 2000 are better for having known him and. poorer for having lost him.
God speed old friend. May St. Patrick and St. Bridget bless you and keep you and may the Lord prepare a place for you at his table. A pint of Harp and a roaring peat fire await you and a welcoming feast with friends and old family to welcome your arrival.
Thanks for all you did for us, and for watching over us now.
Also...No rain this year-We are counting on you!
