Christopher Deehy was appointed as Secretary of the St. Patrick’s Society of Montreal’s Executive Committee.
The St. Patrick’s Society of Montreal was founded in 1834 to unite the members of the Irish Canadian community and to promote the charitable, educational, and cultural interests of the community. Three specific aims of the society are:
- To promote and foster Irish tradition;
- To aid whenever possible persons of Irish birth or origin, and particularly, Irish immigrants;
- To speak, when necessary, on behalf of the Irish Canadian Community.
