United Irish Societies of Greater Cleveland Has Named their Grand Marshal
The United Irish Societies of Greater Cleveland is a non-profit organization consisting of representatives from 28 Irish Organizations whose primary purpose is to organize the Cleveland’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Cleveland’s Parade is Ohio’s oldest and finest comprising approximately 10,000 participants in 125 units. Each year they select a new Grand Marshal and this year, Michael D Coyne was named for the position.
Michael Coyne has been a long time staple of Willoughby, Ohio. His family operates numerous businesses in the Willoughby area and he’s been an icon to many. This past year, he was able to fulfil a lifelong dream when he opened Mickey’s Ice Cream and Hot Dogs.
The 2023 parade theme will be A Salute to Irish-American Athletes. It’s going to be exciting to see all the different style floats that are put together. Kick off is March 17, 2023 at 1:04pm.
Congratulations to all the 2023 United Irish Societies Honorees
