Come walk with members and friends of the Irish American Heritage Museum, the Capital District Celtic Cultural Association (CDCCA) and for the first time in the history of the St. Patrick's Day Parade - a Kerry Cow! We will be meeting at 12:45pm at the CDCCA at 430 New Karner Road, rather than at the AOH on Ontario, as in years past, to accommodate our 4-legged friend.
Why are we marching with a Kerry Cow? Given our mission of preserving Irish American heritage, the Kerry Cow, is a rare breed of dairy cattle native to Ireland. Although these cows prospered in the U.S. for decades, they became scarce in the 1930's. Today there are only a few herds left in North America. Come join us in making history and bringing further awareness to Irish American Heritage.
