Happy birthday Paddy Rooney!

A great day in Long Island on Saturday meeting with two of our honorees – birthday boy Paddy Rooney and former President Pat Rooney.

We brought along two of our five trophies to show to the assembled guests. And the Rooney family has kindly provided us with a loan of a Shamrocks jersey from the club’s first season in 1960.

It will be on display Saturday night at the awards banquet!
