The Leonard Family of Albany, NY is hosting the 45th Irish Gala event founded by Servant of God Patrick Peyton on Sunday, September 28.

The afternoon will feature song, dance, and other entertainment by the internationally known Andy Cooney Irish Band. The event will also include the bag pipers of the Sons and Daughters of Erin, and young Irish Step Dancers from the Farrell School of Dance.

The event will be held at the Ancient Order of Hibernians Hall, Albany, NY. The tickets are $25 per person. There will be great prizes featuring four tickets to a University of Notre Dame home game, a flat screen TV, and other great gifts. A book of 6 chances is $25 and a single ticket is $5.
