Sinn Fein Society hosts St. Patrick's Day breakfast

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Sinn Fein Society celebrated a crack-o'-dawn tradition nearly half a decade old.

The Sinn Fein Society has hosted their breakfast before the parade since 1965.

One of the guests this year, a surgeon general from New York, enjoyed a little tongue and cheek on his role in the breakfast.

"My job is to examine the non members to see if they're suitable for marching, get rid of all the melingerers and make sure that they join the ranks," said Surgeon General Anthony DiBenedetto."
