Friends We Met During the St Patrick's Parade

CBS 58 has great time at Milwaukee Parade


by Michele McCormack

MILWAUKEE-It was back to work Monday for the CBS 58 News Team that rode in and covered the St Patrick's Parade on Saturday March 9th.

We want to thank everyone who greeted CBS 58's Stephanie Brown and her photographer Tom Gifford so warmly while they covered the parade on a chilly day.

We were all so thankful that the rain stopped just in time for the downtown March.

This was the first St Patrick's Parade for CBS 58 Morning News Anchor Jessica Tighe. She's from Elm Grove and is excited to be back home. Her Irish roots are possibly from County Mayo, on her mother's side the family of Dennehy.

CBS 58 Meteorologist Lance Hill certainly was the star. If we had a dollar for every time we heard Hey Lance shouted from along the parade route we would be very rich indeed. Lance also has Irish roots that go back several generation to County Kerry.

News anchor/reporter Michele McCormack was honored to be part of the festivities again. The friendly family atmosphere of the parade she knows would make her mother's family proud. They call County Wicklow home and if you ever get to the Michael Dwyer cottage be sure to say hi to Michele's cousins. They restored that famous cottage and still maintain the farm land there on the other side of the Wicklow gap.

If she mentions her mother's side, then she must also mention her father's side the Cullens and Sullivans from County Sligo and that lovely lovely town we love so well Derry.

Here are some snapshots Michele took that she'll be sure to share with her family back in Ireland when she travels back for the next family reunion.
