Celebrating Irish Heritage in Monroe County

STROUDSBURG — The celebration of Irish heritage continued on Sunday in the Poconos.

It was Stroudsburg’s turn to get in on the Saint Patrick’s parade act.

This was the 37th year for the parade down the main drag in Stroudsburg.

The Pocono Irish-American Club organizes the parade that brings out all these folks to enjoy a wee bit of fun.

There were the bagpipers, and furry friends even joined in the parade that had everyone feeling mighty Irish. Even though it was a week after the holiday.

Carolyn Cobb didn’t let the chilly weather keep her from the fun. “What brings you out here on this cold day? To see the parade, bringing my Irish out. I have my drink glasses, my cheers hat and my beads.”

Marching bands and other groups took part in this annual Saint Paddy’s tradition in Monroe County.

    Eh, bunch of horseshit. St. Pat’s parade almost as week after the holiday, bunch of dorky white people pretending they’re irish. Real irish people hate americans that call themselves irish.
