Irish Central: 400 Irish reach out again to help distressed areas after Hurricane Sandy

Rockaway+_1NC400 Irish volunteers descended on Rockaway and other areas slammed by Hurricane Sandy on Saturday for a Christmas Meitheal (helping neighbors in need).

They fanned out to several stricken sites led by the Ancient Order of Hibernians who organized a massive manpower effort to help damaged areas.

It was the second time in two months that the irish community had come together to help out those in need after the hurricane.
