Saint Patrick's Day Celebrations - 3/16/2014

For the past 20 years, the Barry family of Brownsville, Pa. has celebrated their Irish heritage with a private family celebration on St. Patrick's Day. The event draws 300 family members every year and takes several weeks of preparation.
Ron Barry displays the family crest which was brought over from Ireland by his uncle. The inscription at the bottom is French for "push forward."
Proudly sporting his traditional Irish tweed cap, Ron Barry of Brownsville displays a "shilelagh" which is an Irish blackthorn walking stick.
