Grand Marshal: Stephanie Wheat has enthusiastically accepted our invitation to be our Grand Marshal for the 2024 St. Patrick’s Day Parade. She is grateful for the honor and happy to lead the Laois Association up 5th Ave. Every year Stephanie has marched proudly with her husband, Cormac McEvoy, and their children, along with the extended McEvoy family. As Grand Marshal, she will be following in the footsteps of the McEvoy family members who have previously served in this position: her husband, father-in-law Larry (deceased and sadly missed), mother-in-law Judy, and brothers-in-law Rory, Shane and Hugh.
Stephanie was born and raised in Newburgh, NY. She has been married to Cormac McEvoy for almost 20 years, and the couple have three children: Moira, Eamonn and Aisling. The family lives in Little Falls, NJ. Over the past 20+ years, Stephanie has helped the NY Laois Association with the website and Facebook page, organizing photos and sharing information about the parades on the website and social media. Stephanie currently teaches art in Passaic, NJ and is pursuing a Master’s in Teaching degree at William Paterson University.
Delegation from County Laois: The Laois County Council are delighted to accept our invitation to join us for this year’s NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The delegation will be represented by the Chief Executive’s representative, Ms. Angela McEvoy, Director of Services, and Ms. Evelyn Reddin, Head of the Local Enterprise Office. We look forward to having them join us this year.
