Finn McCool's Irish Pub

Our 8th year and still going strong! With your help we've raised OVER $500,000 for childhood cancer research, just at Finn's! Pat yourself on the back, but it's time to get down to business again. This year, in addition to all our previous Honored Kids, we will be honoring Jocelyn U. from Bush. Jocelyn is 5 years old and suffers from ALL. As she still undergoing some treatment, hopefully she'll be able to make an appearance at the event so we can all show her that we're in her corner! We've also got the one and only, incredibly generous, Mr. Thomas "The Leg" Morestead joining us again. And if that's not enough to pique your interest, you'll be able to take pictures with an authentic 2009 Saints Superbowl ring, you can expect performances from The Rolling Elvi's Jailhouse Rockers, the Leijerettes, Irish dancing by the Muggivan School of Irish Dance, and some traditional Irish music by Richie Stafford to close the day of shearing out. For any interested Shavees, we run the event on a first come, first shave basis. With that said, however, we are always willing to work with anybody who has time constraints. Please use the contact info above to get in touch with Doug Shanahan and we'll work something out. And don't forget, if you can't make the event at Finn's, there are numerous other events in the New Orleans area that would love to have you join them. Finally, don't forget about our sister event in Killybegs, Co. Donegal in Ireland. As some of you may remember, one of our 2011 Honored Kids was Ryan McCrudden from Co. Donegal. Ryan passed away in 2010 after a battle with Leukemia. Twenty years prior, his Aunt Sandra McCudden was diagnosed and passed away from Leukemia. Recently Sandra's father, Jim, was also diagnosed with Leukemia. In honor of their memory, the town of Killybegs, Co. Donegal in Ireland has banded together to create Sandra's Run in order to raise funds for childhood cancer research in Ireland. We are happy to name this event as our "sister" event. If you're in Ireland in July, be sure to check them out.  Also be sure to have a look at their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Sandras-Run-1885037775054132
