Summary:  It’s a Ya Jagoff! Christmas at the Riverplex at Sandcastle for the 28th Annual Irish Festival. Not just because the jagoff pair can celebrate their own Irish roots, but celebrate the highly anticipated festival that includes geneology, Celtic axe throwing, traditional Irish entrees and non-stop powerhouse Celtic music. But wait… the PG’s Tony Norman chose to hang out with us too!
