Death Notice

It is with deep regret that I report that Father Edward Storck died on June 12, 2017. Father Storck was the Chaplain for the New Castle County Irish Society for over 20 years and he enjoyed offering Mass every year to start our annual Fest.  He was a dear friend to everyone at our club and his quick wit and smiling face will be sadly missed at the Irish Center.
