St. Patrick's Day Photo Gallery - Beacon Team Members Celebrated St. Patrick's Day 2022 in NYC on March 17th

Beacon's team members always enjoy a good St. Patrick's Day Celebration. Below are some photos from this year's festivities on March 17th. Beacon's President Dennis O'Neill celebrated by marching up Fifth Avenue in NYC's St. Patrick's Day Parade as part of the Irish Business Organization (IBO) of New York contingent. Dennis was honored to serve as an aid to the IBO's Grand Marshal, Niall O'Leary. Niall is a true renaissance man -- a registered architect, musician, professional dancer, former IBO President, and owner of the highly successful Niall O'Leary School of Irish Dance. Other members of Beacon's NYC team celebrated with Guinness Pints at lunchtime in one of NYC's classic Irish Pubs (see photos below).
