generations to assemble and celebrate the rich culture and heritage of

WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor
Chris Coughlin upon the occasion of his designation as Deputy Marshal of

member of the Clann Eireann Pipe Band, a big part of Bay Ridge since
1930; his father was the Pipe Major in the band; and

wonderful children, Hannah, and Christopher, all of whom feel privileged

the cherished ideals and values of Irish-Americans of this great State
