Traditional Firefighters’ Irish Night

Irish Night was a tradition of the Larchmont Fire Department’s Engine Company for almost a century. Celebrating the Irish heritage of many of Larchmont’s firefighters, members and their families and friends enjoyed a traditional St. Patrick’s day meal of corned-beef and cabbage repast, supplemented by Irish soda bread and a variety of beverages and desserts. The Larchmont Historical Fire Company is restoring this annual tradition, this year dedicating the event to the memory of firefighters during World War II in Larchmont and across the seas.

Everyone is welcome to join our celebration, especially present and former members of fire companies in Larchmont and our surrounding communities, and military veterans who can help us all to remember and honor those who served and died in our wars.
