The Boston Police Gaelic Column of Pipes and Drums share their Irish heritage with Quebecers in the 2019 Défilé de la Saint-Patrick de Québec.

Irish eyes weren’t smiling in Quebec City when it was announced that edition 2020 of the Défilé de la Saint-Patrick was cancelled due to COVID-19. The Quebec City St. Patrick’s parade isn’t alone in being cancelled, however. In Montreal and a number of cities in the United States, and even in Ireland, parades won’t be held this year.
