Sacramento’s connection to Ireland’s new first lady

Sabina Coyne and Michael D Higgins

On Friday, Nov. 11th, Ireland will swear in its 9th president – poet and long-time Labour activist, Michael D. Higgins. Higgins’ wife, Sabina Coyne, is a relative of the Coyne family in Sacramento. The Coynes own the Delta King Riverboat in Sacramento, and will meet there on Thursday night to celebrate the inauguration. Music will be provided by Stout Rebellion.

The family celebrates as the election results are announced.
