CVIHA crowns new queen ahead of St-Patrick’s Day festivities

There is royalty in the Chateauguay Valley.

Ormstown’s Maureen O’Farrell was selected as junior princess during the Chateauguay and Valley Irish Heritage Association’s annual selection evening on February 18 to name its new queen and court for St. Patrick’s Day activities.

Samara O’Gorman was selected as queen, becoming the first person to receive the title from all three of the sister Irish societies in Montreal, Soulanges, and Chateauguay. She now takes over from outgoing queen Madison Chandler, who also participated in the selection evening. A total of six women took part in the event, which saw Kiara Burnett crowned as senior princess and O’Farrell as junior princess. The CVIHA says they are extremely proud of all participants, including Kaylea Burke, Keely Burnett, and Ira-Lyne Morton, whom they hope will return to the competition next year.

The St. Patrick’s Day parade will take place on March 24 in Chateauguay, starting at 1 p.m. The parade will be followed by the CVIHA’s first-ever Irish Festival, set to take place at the Agora. (SR)
