Rockaway Irishtown Alumni March In Florida St. Pat's Day
Over 40 members of the Rockaway Beach Irishtown Alumni and Rockaway Irish Boys marched in the St. Patrick's Day Parade held in Naples, Florida. This was the first time Rockaway was represented in the parade. Many well-wishers along the line of march were former Rockaway residents and summer visitors who shared fond memories of Rockaway.
