On this St. Patrick's Day, The Alamo is deeply honored to host the Harp & Shamrock Society of Texas' 56th annual wreath-laying ceremony at noon, in remembrance of the brave men of Ireland and Irish America who sacrificed their lives during the historic Battle of the Alamo in 1836.

The Harp & Shamrock Society of Texas' wreath-laying ceremony is set to be a truly spectacular event this year. Notably, the ROTC Color Guard from St. Mary's University will be on hand to perform their duties with precision and honor. In addition, attendees will enjoy musical performances by the Kelly Irish Singers and Jonathan Gobert, a talented bagpiper whose musical skills are sure to leave a lasting impression. This free event is open to the public. It is a wonderful opportunity to pay tribute to the rich cultural heritage of Texas and the contributions of Irish Americans to the state's history.

The Alamo is proud to host this important event in collaboration with the Harp & Shamrock Society of Texas. We invite everyone to join today's gathering to remember and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom. The wreath-laying ceremony will be held at Alamo Plaza, located in front of the historic church.
