Dundalk, Md. held it's annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, March 12, 2011. The parade is a celebration of the town’s Irish heritage. In 1856, Dundalk was named by local bell foundry owner Henry McShane, in honor of the town he was born in, Dundalk, Ireland. The name Dundalk is the English speaking version of the Gaelic phrase “Dun Dealgan,” which means “Dalgan’s stronghold.”
