The beloved annual St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast will have a 2021 twist
So far 2021 has been a big, long, continuation of 2020. The St. Patrick’s Day parade has been canceled for the second year in a row due to COVID-19. Pandemic related safety guidelines and restrictions have also been imposed in the City of Boston making celebrating St. Patrick’s day challenging to say the least! Well, when it comes to the annual and historic St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast the show must go on.
State Sen. Nick Collins announced that he will be hosting the Breakfast virtually via South Boston and it will be broadcasted on sports network NESN and WROL Irish radio to support COVID-19 relief efforts.
The annual political tradition will feature a local list of heavy hitters including Gov. Charlie Baker, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, U.S. Reps. Stephen F. Lynch and Ayanna Pressley, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh, Attorney General Maura Healey, Senate President Karen Spilka, and Cardinal Sean O’Malley, among others.
“While the event this year will be a bit different, we are excited to bring back this great Boston celebration, support community relief efforts and enjoy the cultural traditions of the Irish this St. Patrick’s Day weekend,” Sen. Collins said. “As we emerge from this pandemic, it’s important we remember the importance of community. We are excited to broadcast this event on NESN and WROL and encourage people to order takeout from their favorite local restaurant and enjoy the St. Patrick’s Day breakfast with us.”
Collins, who represents Dorchester, South Boston, Mattapan and Hyde Park, is hosting for the second time.
The event will be aired on NESN on Sunday, March 21, from 10 a.m. to noon and broadcast on WROL Irish 950 AM and 100.3 FM and streamed live at www.wrolradio.com.
