Ireland Lacrosse at Doc O’Grady’s

Lacrosse Hall of Fame Coach Richie Moran hosted the event for the Irish Lacrosse Foundation

To kick of St. Patrick’s Day weekend, the Irish Lacrosse Foundation held a fundraiser at Doc O’Grady’s in Garden City, New York. The spirited affair featured Irish National Team players & coaches, along with local supporters all gathering for fun and drinks for the cause of Ireland lacrosse. The Men’s National team will be competing in the 2014 World Championships in Denver, Colorado.

With a local traditional bagpipe player leading the festivities, the crowd enjoyed food & drinks while Ireland lacrosse gear was featured in the raffles & auction. The Irish Lacrosse Foundation thanks all of those wonderful supporters who came down and celebrated with us!
