Neither Mayor Matthew Driscroll nor Congressman Jim Walsh showed up as planned for the 10th annual St. Patrick's day celebration at Tipperary Hill Park. Mayor Matt Driscoll was scheduled to award both Congressman Jim Walsh and long time neighborhood advocate Bob Oberst with their honors.
Matthew Driscoll's second cousin, parks commissioner Pat Driscoll, recognized both Walsh and Oberst for all of their contributions to Tipperary Hill and the Syracuse Community.
The celebration included two bagpipers, one of whom was the grandson of one of the Stonethrowers who advocated for for the green-over-red stop light many years ago.
Children from All Saints elementary school were also in attendance, and they sang a few songs to start off the holiday.
