Welcome to the Tucson Irish Community
Welcome to the Tucson Irish Community, devoted to continuing our Irish traditions in a spirit of cooperation and good will. We will continue to keep you current on news and events related to the local Irish and Scottish community. We are including a series of profiles of members of our local Irish community. Let us know whose profile you would like to read and if that be you, give us your fascinating information! We also have a new section for reviews. And our guestbook is now active. Please write the webmasters with what content you would like to see. This is a monitored guestbook to eliminate spam comments, so there is a delay between your post and it appearing.
See the 2013 St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival pictures here. All parade pictures are posted, but I am still working on festival pictures. No tags are added yet for 2013. (Bear with me as I am uploading these pictures without the assistance of our web designer, who died last month, so they are being added much more slowly than in past years. I have to upload them one at a time, and there are more than 300 pictures. It will take a few days. Also, I will not add keywords to this year’s photos until they are all uploaded.) Pictures may be downloaded free for non-commercial use (tip: be sure to download the picture, not the thumbnail). If you post a picture on your personal or group web site, the photo credit is: copyright 2013, Aine Ni Haralambie, www.tucsonirishcommunity.com. We have added key words to enable you to search pictures (use fewer words—the search looks only for an exact match). We have pictures starting with the 2000 parade and festival. When our server crashed, we lost the 2006 and 2007 albums; I have uploaded the 2007 pictures, but I will not be able to title or key word them. The 2006 pictures may be on a different computer, but they aren’t online now. The 2009 pictures probably won’t get titles. The 2008 pictures are up with titles. All photos were taken with high resolution, but posted with lower resolution. Let us know if you want a high resolution digital copy of a picture.
