Celebrate 2017 NY Rose Sinéad Kirnan as She Heads to Ireland


Come join the Kirnan’s in their favorite local bar, Sweeney’s, to send off Sinéad Kirnan, the 2017 New York Rose Of Tralee. Kirnan leaves for Ireland on August 9th, to represent New York in the International Rose of Tralee Festival. Sinead was born and raised in Orange Co. NY, so let’s give her a proud New York Irish send off.

The New York Rose Of Tralee Center will be accepting donations and 50/50 to help defray the costs and the 300 Euro for charity in Ireland. Our 2017 NY Rose, Sinéad Kirnan, Air National Guard (Air Force) has done so much for our community and country. We are so proud of all her accomplishments and genuine heart. Join us to give her a big New York send off with plenty of good fun. Irish musicians, dancers, singers, and story tellers are welcome to come and join in and make this a real Irish Session.

The Rose of Tralee festival is an international competition which is celebrated among Irish Communities all over the world. The festival, held annually in the town of Tralee, in County Kerry, takes its inspiration from a nineteenth-century ballad of the same name about a woman called Mary, who because of her beauty was called The Rose of Tralee.

Musicians and singers will need to bring your own instruments, leads, and/or microphones.

Can Children and Adults Beat a Supervillain If They Work Together? One Author Thinks So

Lil Defenders 2 Front Cover

Author Jaimie Hope has announced the long awaited release of Book Two in The Lil Defenders series; The Return of the Yellow Menace. And in spite of what adults may think, the theme of this book was intended to be teamwork.

“I’m sure both sides of the political aisle will think it’s a dig at them or will cheer thinking I’m on their side, but that was not what I had in mind when writing this book,” the author said. “My main objective for this series was teamwork. In the first book, the super kids had to work together amongst themselves to beat their enemy. In this book, kids and adults had to work together to defeat the supervillain.” Hope added.

While you can read The Lil Defenders: The Return of the Yellow Menace without having read The Lil Defenders (Book 1), it is recommended that Book One is read first. Book Two picks up right where the first one ends and provides the backstory of how the original superheroes came into their powers.

The Lil Defenders have just beaten their first foes, but they know they still have work to do. Join them as they learn the story of their families’ superhero past and meet their next adversary, a super villain, the Yellow Menace.

The Lil Defenders: The Return of the Yellow Menace is available now on Amazon
