Former Queens

In 1956 the Queen’s Pageant (today known as the Queen’s Selection Evening) was introduced. The Pageant was held at the Sailor’s Club in Old Montreal. Different Parishes had promoted young ladies as Queen of their units in prior years.

Today the Queen’s Selection Evening is a public speaking event open to single women from eighteen to twenty five years of age who are either Irish or of Irish descent who live in the Montreal area.
