What fun it was to meet Captain James Kearns from the LIMERICK FIRE DEPARTMENT in IRELAND today at Fish Tales! He's here to be part of our St. Patrick's Day Parade. He says, "We've participated in many parades around the country including San Francisco and Boston, but Delray Beach is the best! Everybody is so welcoming!"
