Today is the first day of Irish Week!
Mayor Condon has declared Friday, March 10 to Friday, March 17 the Week of the Irish. This week is a great time to celebrate Spokane’s diversity and the Irish culture. The City of Spokane has been a Sister City with Limerick, Ireland since 1990. Our strong bond with Limerick makes this week long celebration even more special.

WHEREAS, it is also time to celebrate our diversity and the richness of the Irish culture that blends with all other ethnic cultures to enhance the fabric of our community to make Spokane the City of Choice for all of our residents; and
NOW, THEREFORE, I, David A. Condon, Mayor of the City of Spokane, on behalf of the citizens of Spokane, do hereby proclaim the week of March 10 through March 17, 2017, as
THE WEEK OF THE IRISH
