The NJ Legislature passed a bipartisan Joint Resolution (AJR 63) designating the month of March as Irish-American Heritage Month in New Jersey. The Resolution was signed into law by Governor Murphy on September 15, 2022.
Among other things, the Resolution recognizes Irish emigration to the United States in the 19th century and how Irish immigrants who joined the Union Army helped preserve the Union during the Civil War. The Resolution also celebrates the contributions of generations of Irish-Americans to the cultural and economic growth of the nation and the State of NJ through their hard work.
The AOH has promoted the expansion of Irish-American Heritage Month throughout the country. Much thanks to National Vice President Sean Pender who worked with one of the Resolution sponsors (Assemblyman Wayne DeAngelo) to make this happen in NJ.
