The premier event of the St. Patrick’s Day season other than the parade itself is the Rockland County Ancient Order of Hibernians Emerald Ball.
The Emerald ball is a night of good friends, good music and good food. Anyone who has attended in the past will tell you that this is a great night out, showing the Hibernians and the Irish Community at its best. The Emerald Ball is also the primary fund raiser for the Rockland County St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Please consider joining us for a night of entertainment and to support the parade we are so proud of.

The telephone number for the hotel is (845) 357-4800 . Tickets are $100 each. Special room rates are available if you mention the Rockland County AOH Emerald Ball when you book your room.
