“For the whole world is Irish on the Seventeenth o’ March.” And in Washington, we are no exception to that adage! According to the Gunn Historical Museum, Ireland was the homeland of the largest group of immigrants to our town – and our Irish roots run deep here. So, this St. Patrick’s Day, celebrate the traditional food, drinks and music of The Emerald Isle right here in Washington CT.
