Start March 17 with a Saint Patrick’s Day Mass at the Irish Heritage Center honoring the men and women who have passed on, with a specific focus on the people lost in the Easter Rising of 1916. The Mass will be followed by a traditional Irish party with Celtic music from Mick McEvilley, dancing, sing-a-longs, historical exhibits and children’s activities. Irish food, Irish craic and your favorite Irish libations — including a perfect pint of Guinness — will be available in the pub room.
2 p.m. Thursday. Free admission. Irish Heritage Center, 3905 Eastern Ave., Columbia Tusculum, irishcenterofcincinnati.com.
