Additionally he said that, "I will be participating in a number of other events to honor the Irish heritage of this city and the contributions of Irish-Americans," he added. De Blasio who was a former public advocate did not participate before he becomes mayor.

A Patrick’s Day breakfast was also hosted in the New York City at Gracie Mansion and later on the day the Mass at Patrick’s Catheral was attended.

One of the USA spokeswomen said that, "We believe in equality for all”.
