The membership have selected Father John Walsh as Irishman of the Year for his accomplishments in preserving Irish culture and traditions as well as his efforts in all his benevolent endeavours. The chief factors in determining whom this award is bestowed upon are quality of character and contribution to the community, both of which Father John is an example for us all.
