          SUMMARY:  Designates March 2015 as Irish American Heritage Month  
          in honor of all the contributions that Irish Americans have made  
          to better the country and state for all people.  Specifically,  
          this resolution makes the following legislative findings:


          1)Over the last several centuries, millions of Irish people have  
            faced severe hardship in their nation and immigrated to the  
            United States in search of a more promising future for  
            themselves and their families.

          2)Irish Americans initially suffered prejudice and discrimination  
            upon arriving in the United States; and, as the years went on,

                                                                      Page  2





            Irish Americans became very involved in the community and made  
            important contributions in all aspects of American society and  
            culture, especially in California.

          3)Today, over 34 million Americans claim Irish heritage, and they  
            continue to contribute to American and California politics,  
            economy, and culture.
