10:42 pm
deserve a great recognition for what you're doing. it's great to see the younger generation here, the tradition of irish dancing maintained and i think the future is very safe for the irish community in san francisco. i was going to say that most nationalities have a day of -- national day of celebration. i was going to say we have a week but no, we have a month as announced by the nea mayor and that's great news to bring to ireland. ireland is a huge country and events like st. patrick's day help to keep the message and that deep root alive. we look no further than san francisco for evidence of that enduring relationship and we look at our michael shaugnessy from yor cork.
10:43 pm
the bonds between cork and san francisco has survived famine, fire and floods and earthquakes. this is to the resilience of the people in san francisco and that's something we mark and commemorate as we approach our st. patrick's day celebrations. and we all stand on the shoulders of giant, myself included. i follow in the tradition of lord mayor. this is 232 years old and number of lor mayors down through the years died in office and wearing this chain and i know we think about people like mayor ed lee and a great friend and i've met him on numerous occasions when he traveled to cork. so we stand on the shoulders of greatness and it's important to remember the people that came before us. it was great to meet mayor breed yesterday and she's doing a fantastic job. we look forward to seeing her roll out her vision for san
10:44 pm
francisco in the years ahead and it's think it's in safe hands and that tr tradition will be carried on and i would like to wish you all the best for that.
