Irish Heritage Celebration flags

The Tyrone Irish Heritage Celebration is fast approaching, and area residents are encouraged to show their pride by flying heritage flags. Irish tri-color flags and Irish Tyrone crest flags are now available for purchase for personal use. A flag to be flown in downtown Tyrone can be sponsored in memory of someone as another option. Those interested should look for the flag coupon on page three of today’s Daily Herald for more information, or contact the Tyrone Area Chamber of Commerce office by email at or phone 684-0736, fax: 684-6070. Some past and new plans in the making for this year’s Tyrone Irish Heritage Celebration are Irish Flags throughout town, a balloon release kickoff, Luck of the Irish Parade, a Clover Leaf Merchants’ Sale, Sunday Spiritual Services in concert with many groups, Tyrone Community Partnership and Wesley UM Church Irish Stew Dinner with Michael O’Brian Band, children’s readings at the Tyrone-Snyder Public Library, Blair County Genealogical Society display at the Tyrone History Museum, Daily Herald coloring contest, and much more!
