Why You Should Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Eagan
Did you know Eagan has deep Irish ties? Named after Patrick Eagan, the first chairman of the town board of supervisors, emigrated with his wife, Margaret Twohy, from Tipperary, Ireland to Troy, New York, where they married in 1843. They arrived in Mendota in 1853-1854 before settling in the Eagan area. Patrick and Margaret farmed a 220-acre parcel of land near the present-day town hall. They developed Eagan into an Irish farming community and created Eagan’s reputation as the “Onion Capital of the United States”.
In addition to onions, the city of Eagan is also known for its delectable dining destinations. Eagan is so very lucky to have Eagan Arms Public House as a part of its restaurant community. This is the perfect place to visit for St. Patty’s Day or to make your new local. Time to grab a buddy or two, put on your “Kiss Me I’m Irish” apparel and show off your green this St. Patrick’s Day here in Eagan!
