Sign up to march with us in 2018 for the 9th Annual Parade! Electronic registration now open!
Meet our 2018 Parade Honorees!

Mercer County's Irish-American community is gathering together Saturday, March 3rd at Hamilton's St. Anthony's Church to commemorate a three-decade legacy of St. Patrick's Day parades, cultural development and overall civic achievement.

There will be, once again, a Mass at 10 am at St. Anthony's Church at 626 S. Olden Avenue.

Immediately following Mass, the Trenton Fire Department's Honor Guard will host a flag-raising ceremony on the steps of St. Anthony's Church. The honor guard will formally present, then raise the Irish flag on the exact spot where the St. Patrick's Day Parade and re-emergence of Mercer County's Irish-Amercian culture began in 1986.

Following the flag raising, attendees are invited back to the Tir na nOg 1324 Hamilton Ave Trenton 08629 for a gathering of the Irish organizations and a bit of "ceoil agus craic".

More information to follow... Please feel free to share this with your organizations, family and friends.

Greetings Friends of RIHA -

I hope this finds you and yours well.

In the event you have not previously heard about it, this note is to share information around our annual celebration where we announced the Grand Marshal and Irish Person of the Year. Saturday, January 27th at the Robbinsville Senior Center we introduced Trisha Danze of Thea's Star of Hope as our Grand Marshal and Andrew Keris as our Irish Person of the Year.

Please join us as we come together to honor Trisha and Andrew and their new titles, their contributions to the community and beyond.
