Friendly Sons of The Shillelagh

St. Patricks Day, March 1968, Newark, N.J. was the first parade for our Pipe Band, fully outfitted in new uniforms.

Credit for supporting the idea of a club Pipe Band and the driving force behind establishing it was our club president, Jack Dunphy. The large financial burden of establishing the band, purchasing pipes, drums, and uniforms, and paying for piping and drumming instruction was borne by The Club. This initiative, taken concurrently with building our club house, demonstrated the fine quality of leadership that our club history depicts.
