Blackthorn crowd at Harrah's on St. Patrick's Day 2012
The Shanty's Irish band played at The Erin Pub in Norwood. There is always a Delaware County reunion party at the Pub on St. Partrick's Day. I spoke to people from all over the area yesterday at the Erin Pub. The McGee family originally from Colwyn, then Broomall, came in from all over Delaware and Montgomery County, to celebrate their mother's St. Patrick's Day birthday. One of three birthdays celebrated there yesterday. Blackthorn came into the Pub for dinner between their gigs at Harrah's, and Brownie's 23 East. Michael and John Boyce of the band also sang the National Anthem at the rugby match at Widener earlier in the afternoon. A couple of busy Irishmen yesterday. As the night wore on, the crowd at the Pub waned, and another St. Patrick's Day in the Center of the Universe was in the books. Delaware County knows how to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!
