“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 AM, and providing the musical and vocal accompaniment this year will be “Irish America’s Favorite Son,” Andy Cooney!
