                                THE PRESIDENT’S CORNER
Dear Club Members,

Happy St Patrick’s Day!!
   I hope this finds all well. We are very busy at present with plans to participate in the
Washington, D.C. Parade on March 11. Details will follow in this mailing. Also, we are forging
ahead with the dinner dance on Friday, March 9th. If you have not purchased your tickets yet,
please give us a call soon. Also, it is not too late to contribute items to the silent auction. Please call
Diane or myself if you have items to donate.
   We are very saddened by the death of young Dermot O’Neill. Please pray for the repose of his
soul and include in your prayers his Mom, Nell O’Neill (a long term member of the club), his family
and his aunt, Bernie Troy (another long term member).
   Our next meeting is scheduled for Sunday April 15th @ 7:30p.m. @ St Camillus in Silver Spring.
Please plan on attending.

                                                                       Colleen
PEGGY’S CORNER:

         PLEASE PRAY FOR THE REPOSE OF THE SOULS OF: Dermot O'Neill,
the beloved son of Nell and the late Jerry O'Neill; Letitia McArdle, sister of Walter Durkan; Ned
Gavin, who along with his late wife Margaret, were members of the Club in the 1970's. May these
dear souls rest in God's peace.
         A GRAND IRISH WELCOME TO OUR NEW MEMBER: Steve Sullivan, who
is in Marketing.

         PRAYERS AND GET WELL WISHES TO: Kathy McGrane, Jean McCarthy,
Bernard Durkan, and Gloria Wilkinson.

         THIS AND THAT: I had occasion to take a ride down to Woodstock, VA to visit Gloria
Wilkinson who is in an assisted living down there called "Dutch Haven." She said hello to everybody
and she misses the Club and attending our activities. She does well and gets around on a walker.
Congratulations to Sean Moriarty (son of the late Betty Moriarty) who became a grandfather on
February 11. His daughter, Leigh Ann and her husband, Bill, are the proud parents of a daughter,
Kyleigh. Several of us who attended the Irish Celebration at St. Jerome's Church on Sunday,
February 26th, had a grand afternoon. Bernadette and Jimmy McAuliffe, Jack O'Brien, Peggy
Morley Nicholson and myself, were in attendance. The band, "Celtic Crossing," entertained the
parishioners of St. Jerome's, who were raving about how much they loved the Irish music. Our
pastor, Rev. James Stack, claims to have Kerry roots.

          ABOUT IRELAND: Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Tanaiste Eamon Gilmore were in New
York last week to attend an "Invest in Ireland" roundtable discussion at New York University hosted
by former President Bill Clinton. The discussion was moderated by Governor Martin O'Malley of
Maryland. The principal message to potential investors was that Ireland is open for business and now
is the time to invest in their economic recovery.

           Many Thanks to Senator Charles Schumer of New York, who has issued a plea for passage
of a bill that will allow up to 10,000 E3 visas for Ireland on an annual basis. Senator Schumer is the
sponsor of S.1983, that has been attached to a Republican-backed House measure that adjusts the
annual apportioning of green cards.

SUBJECT: Irish Taxi Driver
      A British passenger in a taxi in Dublin leaned over to ask the driver a question and tapped him
on the shoulder. The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up over the
curb, and stopped just inches from the edge of the bridge over the Liffey River.
       For a few moments everything was silent in the cab, and then the still-shaking driver said, "I'm
sorry, but you scared the devil out of me."
       The frightened Brit apologized to the driver and said he didn't realize a mere tap on the
shoulder could frighten an Irishman so much.
       The driver replied, "Will the saints in Heaven forgive me -- it's entirely my fault. Today is my
first day driving a cab. I've been driving a hearse for the last 25 years.

The Irish American Club has been in existence for more than sixty years but, unfortunately, the
membership has dwindled. It is very difficult to solicit new members but for those of you who
receive the monthly newsletter you may be able to assist. You could ask for a copy(ies) of our
membership form to send to members of other groups, social workers, dancing school parents or
others with Irish connections. This would be greatly appreciated.
