Get into the spirit of St. Paddy’s Day by joining Guild member Maribeth Oakes on her walking tour that explores Irish-Americans’ imprint on the city. Look through an Irish lens at city parks, historic landmarks, the White House (exterior), and the church hosting DC’s oldest parish.  While individuals’ contributions vary – Revolutionary and Civil War heroes, U.S. presidents, artists, social justice reformers, suffragists – in common they all share an Irish heritage.

Meet at the John Barry Statue at Franklin Square on 14th Street, NW – between K and I Streets.  The two-hour walking tour begins at Franklin Square and finishes at Gallery Place.  Optional warm-up at an Irish pub after the tour.
