Morrin Centre tour guide Sébastien Vézina (far right) pointed out specific locations associated with Irish and British authors who referred to Quebec City in their works. On Dufferin Terrace, he mentioned Charles Dickens’ brief half-day visit to our town in 1842, during which Dickens referred to it as “the Gibraltar of North America.”

This year’s Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations took place from March 21 to 24. After a flag-raising ceremony at City Hall, the festivities continued with a lecture on historic Ireland, the 10th Défilé de la Saint-Patrick de Québec, and ended with a walking tour through the Old City.

Very nice indeed! Keep up the good work Morrin Centre.
