Richie Walsh (1948-2017)

All of us at the Syracuse Irish Festival want to thank Richie Walsh for all he meant to us. We mourn his passing and all our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and all his friends. We will remember him fondly.

Richie was instrumental in the ongoing success of the Irish Festival. The many years of service he brought to the Festival and the guidance and advice he gave to all of us connected with the Festival will always be remembered. In addition to the Festival, Richie dedicated himself to the St. Patrick’s Parade, the Hunger Project, Project Children and the Old Newsboys Fundraiser to name just a few of his many accomplishments.

Richie was a good man that we all loved, respected and looked up to. He will be missed.
