Irish Maryland  & Ireland in America
A soothing tune for you now! Eamonn an Chniuic midi 

As a general rule and in relation to Irish American activities this is a very important rule-Be sure that you know where the money you donate ends up. Funds tossed into a box or a hat may be heading to fund violence. Ask a few questions first. There are many good organizations which do not support violence in any way. I hope you will patronize the many fine Irish Organizations of Maryland. Go out to a few events and report back in. Let us all know!
