August 29 Irish Heritage Day of Saint-Colomban QC

Today there are few Irish in Saint-Colomban and it is generally French speaking. However, the town has always been fiercely proud of its original Irish Heritage. Of course, as you all know, a few years ago, some of us descendants of the original Irish settlers restored the old Irish cemetery.

Now on August 29th 2015, the entire town of Saint-Colomban will be celebrating their Irish roots with the 1st ever Irish Heritage Day of Saint-Colomban and everyone is invited – you don’t have to be a descendant; or even Irish, to attend this fun filled outdoor event.

Dr Ray Bassett, the Irish Ambassador to Canada has confirmed his attendance; the GAA will be demonstrating Hurling; the Town will provide live Irish Music and a whole lot of other activities are planned. So mark your calendars for August 29th and come out and enjoy the day.

Take Macdonald-Cartier Bridge onto Autoroute 50 est towards Gatineau-Lachute-St-Jérome and exit before St-Jérome at Sortie 279 (St-Colomban/Mirabel/St-Canut/Ste-Scholastique) onto chemin Saint-Simon that turns into rue Saint-Simon (4 km) and becomes montée de l'Église (4.7 km) and voilà, you in St-Colomban QC
