Where Are You From The Point


“Walk to the Stone” - Please do mark your calendars for Sunday, May 27th 2018.


For more than 100 years the Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) have hosted a Walk to the Black Rock to remember the 6000+ victims from the tragic events of 1847, as well as, to remember the tremendous humanitarian efforts, by Montrealers of all religions and languages that went to provide support and comfort to these poor and dying Irish in Black ’47.

This year the Walk is scheduled as usual on the last Sunday in May – May 27th.

Since about 1970 after St. Anne’s Church in Griffintown was demolished, the Walk has originated from St. Gabriel’s Church on Centre Street in the Point. The Walk starts after a Mass in the Church, normally around noon. (It proceeds along Centre to Wellington St. Left on Wellington and then right on Bridge St. to the Black Rock). The AOH also provides a bus for anyone with mobility issues that are not able to walk the distance.  Generally the Walk, along with short speeches at the Stone takes just a little more than 1 hour.


In recent years, the Montreal Irish Monument Park Foundation has joined the AOH in this Walk. The objective of the Foundation is, of course, to build a beautiful memorial park in the area just opposite the Rock. After about a decade of effort, this initiative seems to be going well but it is still important that everyone (both Irish and non-Irish) comes out to demonstrate their support.


After the Walk many people return to the basement hall of St. Gabriel’s Church to mingle and celebrate the day. This year there are many special events taking place after the Walk. There is free Irish stew and other refreshments provided by the Irish Embassy Pub; The Lord Mayor of Dublin and other dignitaries will be in attendance; there will be a video recording of anyone that has stories about the Montreal Irish that have been passed down in their family history; there is music with Siamsa Montreal School of Irish Music; a book by Keith Henderson that touches on the Fenians; D’Arcy McGee; and the Black Rock will also be available in the hall and much, much more.

Since it is important that as many people as possible attend this event to remember and support, please note the date and share the information. You could also note your attendance on the following FB Event page:-

Hi George, Can you tell me what street the building behind you is on?

Have a great day. Cliff


Hi Cliff.
The street that is the front of "ANDY'S" is Congregation. It is located between Congregation and Sebastopol on Leber. The one in the picture is my nephew, Dean McCunn, not myself.

Next Play at your Point St. Charles Community Theatre

Celestial Serendipity

by Russell Wiitala


About the Play

Madam Celeste is a spirit guide who on behalf of her seekers (clients) channels another entity Ebee from another planet in a parallel universe for advice. Her seekers come to find out if they should go on a holiday to find their own true love, quit their jobs and how to find hidden gold coins. 

 The problem is Madame Celeste does not initially talk to another entity but makes it up. 

She boasts to her assistant Penelope that she can tell her "seekers" anything and they will still believe here. Things also become a little complicated as Madame Celeste has lost money in the stock market and counsels her seekers to invest in her failed stock. 

Her counselling has surprising, hilarious and serendipitous results for all including Madame Celeste. 

Good clean fun for all!
