The local Irish will celebrate the 24th Shamrock Run and St. Patrick’s Parade this Sunday, March 11: a day to wear your green and brandish your enthusiasm for the Ould Sod. Team Ireland was originally composed of three guys who came up with the idea to hold a run down Broadway on what they dubbed the “first day of spring.” Jim Kelley Smith, Bob Nanz and Bob Ryan figured that a race at the end of winter, attached to Kingston’s St. Patrick’s Parade, would bring people out and give them something to do.
