FOX 4′s Carey Wickersham met with a group that calls themselves “keepers of the culture.”
“I tell people we are the living room of the Irish community,” said Nancy Wormington, director of the Irish Center. ”This is where people come to gather for concerts programs meetings and activities.”
“A lot came with the railroads to the Midwest. They landed on the east coast, grabbed jobs on the railroads and came this far, so they helped build the railroads in KC and then they settled here and they were founding members of the police department, the fire department,” Wormington explained.
