“Bring back the Mass!”…the masses have spoken!

While a traditional Irish mass is a beautiful spectacle wherever it’s held, when we moved it to St. Joseph’s/St. Patrick’s Church in Utica last year, you let us know that one of the things you most enjoyed about a three-day festival was starting out Sunday with a beautiful open-air Irish Mass.  Well, the Mass is back on the fairgrounds this year, starting at 10:30 AM, and providing the musical and vocal accompaniment this year will be “Irish America’s Favorite Son,” Andy Cooney!
