In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, Landing Elementary School in Glen Cove welcomed Glen Cove resident Robert Lynch to share some Irish culture with young students.  A charter member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians divisions in both Glen Cove and Queens and former Chairman of the Glen Cove St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Mr. Lynch entertained youngsters by performing some popular songs on the bagpipes. He also taught them how to march in a parade and how to say Happy St. Patrick’s Day in Irish Gaelic (Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona duit). The students were also entertained by Irish Dancer was Caitriona Greene, who was commended by Principal Dr. Michael Israel on her fine performance.
