Special Announcement - June 16, 2015

Tragedy in Berkeley

The Board of the United Irish Societies of San Francisco has received with sadness and concern the news of the tragic collapse in Berkeley which took the lives of several Irish students and injured a number of others this morning. Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with the deceased andinjured, and with their families and friends.

We are gratified to see the considerable support being lent by the Irish government and Consul General Philip Grant and his office in SanFrancisco, as well as other Irish community organizations in the Bay Area. We stand ready to offer any assistance possible for those affected, and we encourage the community to do so as well.

*Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamnacha.*
May their souls be on the right hand of God.”

Robert Emmet Day Remembrance

Each year the United Irish Societies of San Francisco (UIS) lays a wreath at the foot of Robert Emmet’s statue in Golden Gate Park commemorating his struggle for Irish independence and for the civil rights of disenfranchised Irish Catholics. The UIS remembers his heroism with Irish music, dance, and a recitation of his memorable Speech from Dock, which he delivered at his trial on the eve of his execution. The public is invited to attend this moving event.
