Celebrating 250 Years of the
New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade

 
Celebrating 250 Years of the New York City
St. Patrick's Day Parade
 
An American landmark will be reached in 2011, when New York City celebrates the 250th anniversary of its St. Patrick's Day Parade. As part of the celebration around the 250th Parade, the NYC St Patrick's Parade Committee will launch a commerative book documenting 250 years of Irish heritage, culture and faith in New York at the Irish Consulate on Tuesday January 4th 2011.
 
The first New York St Patrick's Day Parade was held on March 17, 1762, fourteen years before the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
 
That heritage is uniquely presented in Quinnipiac University Press  Celebrating 250 Years of the New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade, written by noted historian, John T. Ridge and edited by Lynn Mosher Bushnell (publication date: January 30, 2011).  The Parade Committee are delighted to announce the launch of This beautiful book pays heartfelt tribute to the Irish in America, descendants of the seven million who emigrated from Ireland over three centuries.  The annual parade reflects their strength, their spirit, and their passion and contributes to the unique character of New York City.
 
Through moving text written by John T. Ridge, one of New York City's leading historians, Celebrating 250 Years of the New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade explores the past, present and future of Irish-American heritage in a vivid portrait of the nation's longest-running parade that symbolizes the proud and passionate people and the events that shaped it.
 
Drawing from New York's most precious photographic archives, editor Lynn Mosher Bushnell has assembled a visual history of the parade that unfolds page by page with hundreds of rare and extraordinary photographs. 
 
Held each year to honor Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland, the parade also honors the Archdiocese of New York by celebrating a proud legacy of Irish faith and heritage.  This year the Parade will again be reviewed from the steps of St. Patrick's Cathedral by Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York, a tradition dating from earlier days at the Old St. Patrick's Cathedral in Lower Manhattan.
 
In 2011, as in all 250 previous years, the parade will be organized by volunteers from the community and AOH under the careful stewardship of the St. Patrick's Parade Committee who ensure that the parade retains its traditional values and connection to its past and the church, under the steady leadership of Chairman-Director John T. Dunleavy.  This year the Grand Marshal of this historic parade is best-selling author Mary Higgins Clark.
  
"Recognizing the 250th Anniversary of the New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade is a momentous occasion worthy of great joy and celebration," says Mr. Dunleavy.  "By publishing this signature book along with Quinnipiac University Press, we strive to preserve the history of the parade and the memory of all the wonderful years for future generations to enjoy and remember. On behalf of the parade committee, our affiliated organizations, sponsors and supporters, we hope you enjoy this publication and all that it represents in our proud 250-year history of marching on the streets of New York." 
 
The New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade workers and committee members are volunteers. Some members and their families have helped run the parade for several generations.  All take great pride in the work while encouraging others of Irish heritage and descent to join them in organizing and running the world's largest parade.
 
In a recent message Mary McAleese, President of Ireland, said, "Every year on the 17th of March, we in Ireland come together with our extended family around the world to honor our patron saint and to celebrate all the attributes that made us proud to be Irish. It gives us immense pleasure and delight to see so many celebrations of our culture and traditions taking place across the globe. Our connection to New York and the St. Patrick's Day Parade in that city is a particularly strong and special one.
 
 
Celebrating 250 Years of the New York St. Patrick's Day Parade is a full-color hardcover edition, 144 pages, lavishly illustrated history of the legendary New York City event, the oldest (and biggest) parade of its kind in America.  Published by Quinnipiac University Press, the book retails at $49.95, and is available December 30 for pre-order through the dedicated webpage, www.250yearsparadebook.com  
 
Format: Hardcover, 144 pages
Price: $49.95
 
 
Author:
John T. Ridge (author) has been attending St. Patrick's Day Parades since the 1950s when his immigrant Irish parents first took him to watch the spectacle on Fifth Avenue. For more than 40 years he has been a regular marcher in the ranks and at the same time a careful observer of the parade's struggles and triumphs in an era of major challenges. As historian for the parade committee, Ridge has combined his insider's view with years of research in libraries and archives to bring to life a unique picture of New York's oldest parade. Ridge has also drawn on many years of writing about the New York Irish in periodicals and books as well as some up-close observations from his walking tours of long-vanished Irish neighborhoods in the city. He is a past president and current officer of the New York Irish History Roundtable. He is a past president and current officer of the New York Irish History Roundtable and a frequent contributor to its annual journal of New York Irish History.
 
Editor:
Lynn Mosher Bushnell (editor) manages Quinnipiac University Press and serves as vice president for public affairs at Quinnipiac University. She has marched in the New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade under the Quinnipiac University banner for nearly 20 years. She often is joined on the parade route by her husband, Donald, the great-grandson of Irish immigrants, and their three children, Katharine, Rebecca and Stephen. Quinnipiac University is home to An Gorta Mór, the world's largest collection of art and literature devoted exclusively to Ireland' s Great Hunger. The extensive sculpture collection and other rare holdings may be viewed on the Quinnipiac University campus or online at www.thegreathunger.org.

"To be invited as Grand Marshal to lead the parade in such a significant year as 2011 is a very high accolade and one that I will deeply appreciate forever. . .   This is a book that is sure to be treasured by your family for generations to come. Now you can enjoy this wonderful keepsake of all those memorable parades through the decades."
- Mary Higgins Clark
2011 Grand Marshall of the 250th New York City
