From The Host

Senator Nick Collins

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the 2024 Annual St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast. We are excited and grateful to have you all here today.

For over seventy years, the St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast has served as an opportunity for cultural leaders and the community to come together in celebration of our Irish heritage here in Boston and throughout the Commonwealth. As we gather to celebrate the feast of Ireland’s patron saint, St. Patrick, through the Irish traditions of music, dance and laughter, let us be mindful that the freedoms we exercise here today—freedom of speech, freedom to gather, freedom of religion, freedom of the press— are engrained in our Constitution. It is in our nation’s DNA but it is not free.

Today, we also celebrate the important history of the Revolutionary War and the Evacuation of British Troops from Boston. In this spirit of Evacuation Day, we honor the members of the United State Armed Forces and their families. These selfless citizens from all race and creed sign up to defend our nation, its laws and freedoms. It is because of their service and sacrifice that we can enjoy this celebration.
And remember, no matter who you are or where you come from – everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!
Céad Míle Fáilte!

A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Nick Collins
