We are thrilled to introduce the 2016 Grand Marshals and Honored Clergy Member. The Grand Marshals are Noreen and David Kilkenny and the Honored Clergy Member is Reverend Christopher J. Devron, S.J.
Noreen and David Kilkenny are committed to their family, faith, community, and Irish heritage. They are active members of St. Theresa’s Parish and the Chippewa Democratic Club, and for the past 18 years, David has been coaching for the St. Raymond’s Gaelic Football Club where his efforts have served to promote Irish culture. He is also a member of the County Sligo Association, the Brehon Law Society, and the Ancient Order of Hibernians, and Noreen has served the community for the past 11 years at Bronx Community Board #10. Fr. Devron has a proven educational background of stellar academic excellence. He began his career in education as a volunteer teacher at Cardinal Spellman High School in the Bronx and he is currently the President of Fordham Preparatory School in the Bronx. Fr. Devron is focused on enriching the lives of his students and he has dedicated himself to making quality, affordable secondary education accessible to students of modest means.
We also celebrate the lives of the Honorary Grand Marshals. These individuals represent all facets of our Bronx Community and we are proud to honor them posthumously at the 18th Annual Throggs Neck St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
