Erin go Xaverian

Irish eyes were smiling and the pipes were calling from glen to glen and down the streets of Rockaway again, as members of Xaverian High School’s Pipe and Drum Corps kicked off the 39th annual Rockaway Saint Patrick’s Day parade on March 2.

Standing O knows it’s in that other borough, but it’s still close enough to Brooklyn’s Irish heartstrings for pipers and drummers to get a shout-out.

Thankfully the music-makers will be piping and drumming in the Bay Ridge St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 23, so we can all enjoy a rousing round of “Oh, Danny Boy.”

Polish up the shillelagh and get ready to march, and sláinte to the team — may we meet on the bonnie, bonnie banks of Third and Marine avenues on parade day.

Xaverian High School [7100 Shore Rd. at 77th Street in Bay Ridge, (718) 836–7100].
