Part of my heritage is Irish. So Iíve always been interested in the country, itís culture and history. In 2005, my husband and I traveled to Scotland and Ireland. When we returned I did more research on places we visited, read famine diaries and learned of the dark and desperate passages out of Ireland on the coffin ships. I discovered that my great grandfather arrived in Canada after surviving the long voyage on one of those ships.

The traffic light on Tipperary Hill symbolizes the spirit of the Irish who came to live in Syracuse. They settled here, worked on the canal, and helped our city grow in other ways while enjoying a newfound freedom from the hunger of Ireland. I celebrate their endurance, humor and lust for life.

Green light proudly wears the crown
