Just how GREEN are you? No, I don't mean tree-hugger green or green with envy. I'm thinking more along the lines of ... green beer anyone?? Monday is Saint Patrick's Day and in honor of the patron saint of Ireland we'll take a look at the history of the Irish in Cleveland . We'll examine the role of Irish culture in our local communities and ask just who are Cleveland's Irish anyway? Wear your favorite shade of green and join us Monday at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.



Jerry Quinn, President of the Cleveland Mayo Society; Emeritus Trustee to the Irish American Archive Society; First President of the Irish American Club East and Host of the Irish Radio hour on WHK 1420 AM
Kevin McGinty, Co-host of the Sounds of Britain and Ireland on WCPN
Regina Costello, Former curator for the Irish American Archives of the Western Reserve Historical Society
