The United Irish Societies of Greater Cleveland is a non-profit organization consisting of representatives from 27 Irish Organizations whose primary purpose is to organize the Cleveland's St. Patrick's Day Parade. Cleveland's Parade is Ohio's oldest and finest comprising approximately 10,000 participants in 125 units.

The theme of the 2105 Parade was "150 Years: Celebrating the Role of the Irish in the American Civil War"

The 2015 Parade Honorees were:

  • Grand Marshal Daniel M. Corcoran
  • Irish Mother Patricia Hollywood
  • Co-Chairs Fr. Bob Begin and Maire O'Leary Manning
The Irish American Club Eastside (IACES) Member of the Year was Robin Burton. The West Side Irish American Club (WSIAC) Man of the Year was Tim Campbell, Woman of the Year Kathleen Mangan and Queen of the Year Mary Therese Lavelle.

The Irish American Club Eastside (IACES) Pipe Band performed this traditional Irish medley as a warmup before marching in the 2015 St. Patrick's Day parade in Cleveland.
