March 19 to be proclaimed as "Mike Sweeney Day" in Presho

Posted by Lucy

-Blarney Commission
 
The Blarney Commission has proclaimed Saturday March 19, 2016 as Mike Sweeney Day in Prsho. Mike was one of the founders of the local Blarney Commission, as well as the official parade bagpiper for many years. We all fondly remember Mike and his Irish musical group "The Green Berets" composed of bagpipes, drums and Irish Tin Whistles, as they made their way down Main Street. Not to mention through the bars and sale barn, to get everyone in the festive mood. He was also very instrumental in aquiring a Chip o’ the Blarney Stone from Ireland in the early 1990’s. Quite a feat indeed! When The Stone finally arrived in Presho, Mike hosted a "Presentation o’ the Stone" event at his house, complete with kilts, flags, bagpipes, whistles and drums. Along with Mike and Wanda Lee, others that were present included Pat Konzem, Dennis and Patrick Donovan, John Wolf, Mark Sweeney, and myself, serving as color guard at age 3! They say you don’t remember much as a young kid, but I remember that day very clearly. Excitement was in the air! After watching Mike play the bagpipes that day, I knew that was what I wanted to do, and as they say, "The rest is history". The Blarney Commission will host the Shamrock Shuffle, a parade, and live music throughout the day and much more to honor Mike during this year's celebration. And while we celebrate in Presho, South Dakota’s Irish Capital, Mike will have the honor of spending his first St. Patrick’s Day with the Good Saint Patrick himself, and all those wonderful Sweeneys in that great big Emerald Isle in the Sky!
