• Dinner Dance – April 27th, 2024

  • Letter from the Chairman

    Dear Friends:

    On Saturday, April 27, 2024, the Essex Chapter of the Order of the Friendly Sons of
    the Shillelagh will hold its 54th Annual Dinner Dance at The Hanover Manor in East
    Hanover, NJ from 6:00 to 11:00 PM. Our dance has become a warm tradition and
    one of the top social events on the Irish-American calendar, and this year will be no
    exception. The evening will include a 90-minute cocktail hour, a sit-down dinner, an
    open bar, and live entertainment provided by The Will O’Connor Band and the Essex
    Shillelagh Pipes & Drums

    It is with much pride that we announce Rick Dyer and Steve Shaffer as our 2024
    distinguished honorees. Both are dedicated longtime loyal members who have
    tirelessly served the Irish-American community at large. They are individuals who
    represent the best of Irish and American values and are well deserved Shillelagh Men
    of the Year.

    Our 2024 Friend of the Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh is Ms. Barbara Hughes. She is
    a strong supporter of our Order, is an active and consistent advocate for our many
    charitable events and is dedicated to fostering Irish culture and serving the needs of
    the greater area communities.

    To help remember our Dinner Dance, we will publish a commemorative journal. To
    place a message or advertisement in our Dinner Dance Journal, or to obtain tickets to
    the dance please contact any member of the committee, order on-line via our website
    at https://essexshillelagh.com/events/dance, or return the enclosed advertisement and ticket
    request forms. As a kind reminder, there will be limit to the number of tickets being
    sold, so please act early!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Dance!
