2019 SLC St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Presented by Hibernian Society of Utah at Start of Parade Route

This year celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Golden Spike, also known as “The Last Spike” that joined the rails of the First Transcontinental Railroad across the United States connecting the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads in 1869. Because of the Civil War, labor shortages delayed construction of the railway and upon conclusion of the war, Union Pacific employed veterans of the Union army, many of them Irish immigrants. After completion of the railroad, many of the Irish immigrants would go on to settle and call Utah home.
