Simon McDonaugh

The United Irish Societies lost a dear and valued member in 1992, when Simon McDonaugh passed away and, in 1993, an award was established for the community to remember Mr. McDonaugh's dedication to his heritage and to the humanitarian acts committed during his life. Mr. McDonaugh’s association with the United Irish Societies and the St. Patrick's Parade were long standing. From 1940 to 1979 he served the organization and the annual parade as its Chief Deputy Marshal. During those years he was the inspiration to the marshals and members for the successful implementation of the parades. For many years he took the responsibility, with his colleagues, to build the reviewing stands for dignitaries to review the parades. In later years, Mr. McDonaugh was presented with a Gold Card Membership in recognition of a lifetime of loyal and faithful service to the United Irish Societies and to the annual St. Patrick’s Parade. The memory of Mr. McDonaugh’s humanitarian lifestyle lives on through this award.
