As Friends of the Aged Woman’s Home may be aware, in the early 20th century, Georgetown, (especially the west side near the present-day Holy Trinity
Church, Georgetown University, and Visitation School) was home to a large influx of Irish immigrants. While the large concentration of Irish newcomers has long since dispersed, the Irish influence, including a few dishes that resemble real Irish cooking, live on here at the Home.
Our Executive Director, Erin, claims a bit of Irish heritage as do a few of our Board Members and some of our Guests. JB, who every March 17th claims to be fully Irish at least in spirit, proclaims the Staff-made corned beef and cabbage to be “the bomb and simply to die for.”
Although we are not yet sitting down communally to celebrate any festivities, we hope to do so in the coming months, along with all our Friends and Supporters. Happy belated St. Patrick’s Day!
