Legislator Flotteron Brings Bill Forward Naming March as Irish American Heritage Month

Irish American Heritage Month

Following the passing of a proposal to recognize Irish Americans by the Suffolk County Ways and Means Committee, the Legislature unanimously passed a bill brought forward by Legislator Steven J. Flotteron (R) – 11th Legislative District to establish March as Irish American Heritage Month.

This recognition is a great opportunity to celebrate the nearly 33 million Americans with Irish ancestry and their tremendous contributions to the betterment of our country. During Irish-American Heritage Month, we celebrate the indispensable contributions Irish Americans have made to every chapter of our Nation's history. Generations of Irish immigrants have carried to our shores character, culture, and values that continue to play pivotal roles in the strength and success of America.

Many Irish Americans immigrated to the United States during the terrible years of Ireland's Great Famine in the middle of the 19th century. Despite facing discrimination and poverty, Irish Americans persevered thanks to their industry, leadership, and integral involvement in society.

“Irish Americans can take a moment to look with pride and gratitude at their accomplishments in America and remind this generation’s Irish Americans of their heritage,” said Legislator Flotteron.
