Join alumni, family and friends as Monsignor Farrell hosts our second annual, now famous, St. Patrick's Day Party and Shepherd's / Cottage Pie Contest, sponsored by O'Neill's (Mike Regan '88) and Canlon's (Ed Canlon '80) restaurants.  

The evening will feature plenty of food and drink, including traditional Irish fare with menu items from O'Neill's and Canlon's, beer from Guinness and, of course, Shepherd's and Cottage pies. Sample many different versions throughout the evening and then vote for your favorite!  We will also have special guest judges.

Our Shepherd's Pie / Cottage Pie Contest is open to all chefs and amateurs alike.
