Dignitary Fields Questions

By Staff | Mar 22, 2016

ARE THERE REALLY LEPRECHAUNS? -- John Deasy, Irish Parliament Deputy (right), answered questions from students at Emmetsburg Catholic School last week. Many of the questions were about Leprechauns. Some of the other questions addressed what they eat in Ireland and where they live in Ireland. At Emmetsburg West Elementary School, one student was sure there is no such thing as a Leprechaun. “How do you answer that?” Deasy wondered. In addition to visiting the schools, John Deasy toured Emmetsburg businesses and industry, including a stop at POET Biorefinery. He participated in the bean bag tournament on Friday and started the O’Round the Loch Run on Saturday before the parade. --Jane Whitmore photo
