Skinny and Houli welcome new elected President of the Irish American Heritage Center Gene Cooney to the show. Gene is a long time member of the Heritage Center as well as an undertaker with Cooney Funeral Home, which his grandfather from Galway founded over a hundred years ago. Gene has a vision for the center that includes more young people and young families joining the center and is fielding suggestions and ideas on how to make the IAHC a better place, including proposing a partnership with Gaelic Park where the two Irish cultural centers compete each year for The Shamrock Cup with a cross town rivalry of games and competitions that will bring us all together at the same time. Then we’re visited by George Nikolopoulos, owner of 7 locations of The Blueberry Hill Cafes, and how he feeds the multitudes of Irish Catholics every Sunday after mass. Tune in for this terrific show.
