That’s John Gallagher with the Ancient Order of Hibernian Dubuque Chapter #1. The Hibernians play a big role in Dyersville’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration, which includes an Irish Mass at St. Francis Xavier at 10:30 Saturday morning. Of course, the highlight of the day is always the St. Patty’s Day parade.
The St. Patrick’s Day parade will head through downtown Dyersville starting at 1:30 Saturday afternoon. Prizes will be awarded for the best parade floats and entries. (Photo courtesy of AOH’s Facebook page)
