Senior dance honors St. Pat’s parade co-founder Pat O’Neill

Forget mosh pits and slam dancing or risk an ambulance ride.

But there’s nothing quite like swaying to a live swing band on a high school gym floor – just ask veteran swingers who still do it.

The Redemptorist Center Senior Citizens Club invites everyone to music, dancing and refreshments at the annual St. Pat’s Senior Ball on March 14.

The event will be from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the gym of the Cristo Rey Kansas City High School, 211 W. Linwood Blvd.

Performers will include a swing band, Dublin-born folksinger Eddie Delahunt and dancers from the Driscoll Academy of Irish Dance.

The free yearly event started in 2000 and is sponsored by the seven O’Neill brothers and their families and friends. It is in memory of Kansas City St. Patrick’s Day Parade co-founder Pat O’Neill Sr., who died in 1999.
