Ryan Hamilton is new to the Statehouse, but he’s experienced when it comes to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day!

The Irish-born, 15th Essex District’s freshman state representative held his first “Celebration of Irish Heritage” party at the Irish Cottage, complete with the traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner. The room was packed and Hamilton welcomed his guests at the door with his dad Mickey, mom Shauna and sister Haley by his side.

Hamilton briefly spoke, introducing several state and city officials who were in attendance and welcoming those who came out to celebrate.
“Enjoy and have a great time!” he said.
