RING OF HONOR


ST. PATRICK’S RING OF HONOR

The St. Patrick's Ring of Honor is to recognize those who have given exemplary service in and to the Irish Community of the Philadelphia Tri-State Area. Honorees should be persons who have Irish background or who have made a profound impact in the Irish Community or the Parade. On occasion, an entire group may be honored for service to an entire community such as Police Officers or the Heroes of 9/11.
