Two local Irish women will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with “Pot of Gold: Irish Stories and Songs from Two of Chicago’s Own – Mary Megon Margaret McDonough and Susan Eileen Mary O’Halloran” at 7 p.m. on March 16 at Evanston SPACE, 1245 Chicago Ave.
Two local Irish women will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with “Pot of Gold: Irish Stories and Songs from Two of Chicago’s Own – Mary Megon Margaret McDonough and Susan Eileen Mary O’Halloran” at 7 p.m. on March 16 at Evanston SPACE, 1245 Chicago Ave.

 Singer Megon McDonough (aka Mary Megon Margaret McDonough), was the seventh child of nine born to an Irish American family from Crystal Lake. Story artist Susan O’Halloran (aka Susan Eileen Mary O’Halloran) was born to an Irish American family on the south side of Chicago.

They will delight audiences as they weave together stories and songs about the pleasures and pitfalls of being raised Irish American. The concert will include classics such as “Danny Boy” and original and humorous tunes such as “The Mary Gig,” as well as stories about searching for connections with the “old country” and the unique Irish way of dealing with opposition.

No one need be Irish to enjoy this evening that will celebrate everybody’s heritages and look at what is universal for us all: family, sacrifice and, always, joy and laughter in the face of life’s challenges.

Tickets are available at evanstonspace.com or 866-777-8932.
