On Wednesday, March 14, 2018, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. hosted his annual Irish Heritage & Culture Celebration at the Rambling House in Woodlawn.

This year’s honorees included Anne Marie Anzalone, Chief of Staff for U.S. Congressman Joseph Crowley; Mike McGuire, Director of the Mason Tenders’ District Council and Monsignor Kevin Sullivan, Executive Director of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York.

“Irish immigrants and Irish-Americans helped build this borough and this city, and have been one of New York City's and The Bronx’s most significant ethnic groups since the late 19th century,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. “New York City’s Irish community has been a shining example of the American Dream and the positives that come with our city and our nation serving as a melting pot of different cultures. I want to thank all of our honorees and recognize these individuals for their outstanding achievements while we pay tribute to our Irish population and its storied heritage and culture.”
