SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Wednesday night, a 25-year-old tradition continued.
We’re talking about the Police Emerald Society - a celebration of law enforcement officers of Irish descent.
They also brought in a bagpipe band for the event.
Organizers say the event is a great way to unite people of Celtic descent from across the globe.
“We do have guys from Dublin, Ireland here They come for about 15 years now - they come into Savannah and if you ask them why they come to Savannah for St. Patrick’s Day they’ll tell you ‘because Savannah does it right.’”
