Hibernian Media Chairman Mike Houlihan is launching a promotional tour of Chicagoland’s Irish Pubs as he continues to salute local Irish First Responders on his weekly show, Hibernian Radio Hour, which is broadcast every Saturday night from 7-8PM on WSBC 1240AM and podcast at hibernianradio.org
“We started the show in 2019 to honor our Irish cops, firefighters, and paramedics, but recent statements by morons pushing to ‘defund the police’ have really ticked me off. We’d like to record our show from a variety of Irish pubs in Chicagoland to salute the local police officers for their valor and fortitude in this very troubling time. The cops deserve our respect and prayers in their continual fight against societal ignorance and bias spawned by uninformed politicians and ‘social justice protestors.’”
The tour will take the show to Irish pubs throughout the city and record talks with each pub’s “favorite cops”, as they discuss their careers and Irish backgrounds, including music and community news along the way. “It’s also a great opportunity for pub owners to let the police know how much they are appreciated in their community.”, Houlihan said,
