The Hibernians presented The City of Yonkers with a large framed copy of the Irish Proclamation of Independence on behalf of the city’s Irish Community.  The City Council approved a resolution calling for April 24th to be declared “Irish Republic Day” in the City of Yonkers.  A framed copy of the resolution was presented to the members of the AOH Myles Scully Division #1, which was founded in Yonkers in 1891.  Copies of the resolution were to be sent to the Irish Embassy in Washington and the Office of the Irish Consular General in New York City.

Division President Kevin Ellis addressed the City Council before the beginning of the meeting to thank the council members for helping commemorate an important event in Irish & American History. “The Easter Rising changed the course of history for Ireland, and the Proclamation was a document ahead of its time.” said Ellis, “The proclamation is was also unique in its reference to the exiled children in America.”
