Since 1851, the famed Fighting 69th Regiment has led off the St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York City. This year, the regiment assembled to perform this honorific rite having enjoyed a full traditional Irish breakfast served at its regimental headquarters in Manhattan, compliments of Tommy Moloney's, America's largest provider of authentic Irish food products.

The company's President, Limerick native Bill Colbert, says, “We at Tommy Moloney's were delighted to make this important gesture in supporting our troops by providing some 2,000 breakfasts of the best in Irish food products for the Fighting 69th on St. Patrick's Day at their Regimental Armory on Lexington Avenue at 25th Street in New York City. We are also mindful of the historic connections between us because Tommy Moloney's recipes date back over 200 years to County Limerick where the original company operated. And, of course, the origins of the Fighting 69th Regiment have many connections to Limerick – for example, its Regimental March since before the American Civil War is 'The Garry Owen', which refers to a famous place near the City of Limerick.”

To cater to the surging popularity of its top-quality product offerings, Tommy Moloney’s has established a state-of-the-art, USDA-approved production plant in Maspeth, incorporating the latest cutting-edge technology to produce its product line, which includes Irish Breakfast Bacon, Corned Beef, Sausage, Cured Pork Loin, Pudding, Fresh Boneless Irish Hams and Premium Oak-Smoked Irish Salmon. These products are shipped daily and can be found in cities throughout America, at prominent restaurants, leading supermarket chains, pubs, specialty stores and theme parks in cities such as Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles and Orlando.
