Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day -- almost


Tonawanda News — When McNerney heard that Youngstown was promoting its St. Patrick’s Parade Saturday as the “World’s Shortest”— from the Stone Jug Restaurant to Brennan’s Irish Pub, less than 30 yards away — he said that he would look into the claim. “I may go and count the steps there,” he quipped, referring to the village event in tribute to the late Mayor Neil C. Riordan. 

In 2011, the AOH acquired a place to call its home, the former LaSalle Lodge 1049 (F&AM), at 9020 S. Military Road, Niagara Falls. The two-story, 2,700-square-foot building was built in the 1850s — about 10 years before the Civil War —and served as the town hall long before LaSalle was annexed by the City of Niagara Falls.
