The Hibernian Society of Utah was formed to preserve Irish history, culture, and traditions within the State of Utah.

On this St. Patrick's Day we invited former president of the society and current trustee, Meghan Gibson, to talk about what the Hibernian Society is.

It was started in 1978, and Meghan's dad was one of the original founders.

The St. Patrick's Day Parade is their flagship event. This was the first time in two years they were able to hold it, and people were ready to celebrate.

There were almost 80 entrants in the parade, including a team from Fox 13.

The Hibernian Society is also giving back, using a portion from this St. Patrick's Day, and giving back to the Utah Ukrainian Association. St. Patrick always taught his followers to be humble and give back. They are donating $3,017.00.
