The History of Tartan Day
In 1998 the U.S. Senate declared April 6 to be National Tartan Day to recognize the contributions made by Scottish-Americans to the United States. In 1999, two pipe bands and a small but enthusiastic group of Scottish Americans marched from the British Consulate to the UN—our first Parade! Since then, we have grown to include hundreds of pipers, thousands of marchers and many more thousands cheering from the sidelines.
The National Tartan Day New York Committee was formed as a 501(c)(3) in 2002 to organize the Parade and co-ordinate all the associated activities which surround the Parade. There are now so many it has become Tartan Week, with a definition of “week” as anything, so far, from 7-21 days.

We are so honored to not only have worked with Becky Lynch, but are so happy that she mentions us during the Jim Norton and Sam Roberts show.
Co-Owner Aidan Fogarty recalls the first time he met Becky Lynch
I do remember the day when she walked in and asked for work, unfortunately I can’t remember the exact date, summer of 2010 it was. She walked through the door and in her thick Dublin accent asking if there were any jobs going. Being from the same place as myself the conversation was comfortable and came very naturally. I always ask people when interviewing possible new members of staff, “what’s the goal, what’s the ambition”, without hesitation Rebecca replied “I’m going to be a wrestler in the WWE.” That honestly got my attention, at this stage I may have noticed her physique and thought that if I maybe didn’t give her the job she would drop me on my head and we know she easily had the ability for that. I remember thinking that what impressed me the most was that this woman had serious enthusiasm and drive, if she was eventually going to get what she wanted (WWE notoriety not full time at Hibernia). I knew that she wasn’t going to get into the WWE the next day, so selfishly in my mind I knew that we’d have a solid hire for a good amount of time knowing how transient our industry can be. Anyhow, in all honesty, it was her personality that landed her the job; being from my hometown was a bonus for sure, but Hibernia and the Hibernia team are all about making people feel like they are at home. Our goal is for Hibernia to just be an extension of our customers living room and we are always working to make sure that every one of our customers feels like they are a part of our ever-growing family, and Rebecca, she had that thing. She knew naturally how to talk to people, make them feel comfortable and above all she knew how to make anyone feel welcome when they walk into that door with 401 W. 50th above it.
Unfortunately, I broke my leg and ankle pretty bad maybe the 2nd shift the future Champ worked and my return to work was her going away party. I did get amazing feedback on how she became part of the Hibernia family, customers and staff loved her alike.
Rebecca Quinn or “Quinnderella” as she was lovingly dubbed by a lot of the staff and customers will always have a special place in the hearts of everyone associated with Hibernia.
Long Live the Champ!! #tiocfaidh #Ireland
A fiery redhead from Dublin, Ireland, Becky Lynch is ready to fight anyone in her path. Trained for the squared circle at the age of 15, Lynch travelled the world perfecting her craft before joining NXT in 2014.
While proving she could hold her own between the ropes, Becky forged various friendships during her time at NXT, including one with Bayley and another with Sasha Banks as part of Team B.A.E. (Best at Everything). Eventually, Becky shocked the WWE Universe when she joined WWE’s roster as part of the “Women’s Evolution” alongside Charlotte and Paige.
Although the trio eventually broke apart, Becky continued to be a star on the rise, culminating in her crowning as the first-ever SmackDown Women’s Champion at Backlash 2016 when she defeated Alexa Bliss, Naomi, Natalya, Nikki Bella and Carmella in a Six-Pack Elimination Challenge.
After turning on her best friend Charlotte Flair, Lynch captured her second SmackDown Women’s Title and put the women’s locker room on notice that she will never be second best again – Source WWE
