Christy Roche, Historian
A great night was had at the Porch and Pint Pub on September 26th hosted by our Irish Club, featuring guest speaker, Christy Roche, historian, from Ireland. Christy assists Peter Robinson descendants with research enabling them to make family connections in Ireland. Following Christy's presentation, a question and answer period followed.
Kathy Young, one of the Club's Board members, entertained us with some beautiful Irish music. It was wonderful to see a full house and people from various organizations, even Michigan. Thank you to Mary Smith, Maureen Crowley for arranging for the evening; Brendan Moher for update re: 2025 Peter Robinson Celebration, and Kathy Young for her wonderful music.
