Irish Convention To Dedicate Kilbane Statue In Cleveland

Convention City is holding another gathering.  The 2014 World Convention of Mayo Societies will convene in downtown Cleveland at the end of September.  Colleen Corrigan Day, a member of the board of trustees for the Mayo Society of Greater Cleveland lays out the agenda, and explains why there are more people with county Mayo heritage in Cleveland than in any other city in the United States.

The weekend convention will culminate with the dedication of a statue to Johnny Kilbane, a Clevelander  who for more than a decade in the early 1900s was the world featherweight boxing champion.
