Mariah, a graduate of Augsburg College, majored in political science and minored in Spanish. Genealogy is her bailiwick, Irish and Celtic culture and history, in particular, enhanced by her interest in the Spanish language. Her diversity of interest spills over into entertainment which includes biking, crafts, attending plays and concerts, and participating in political activism. Mariah lives with her fiancée Daniel, also diagnosed with Asperger's.

Mariah's Irish Tour of St. Paul:

Mariah's Irish heritage has piqued her interest in St. Paul's Irish roots and heritage. Her tour will walk you through the impetus behind the Irish migration to St. Paul in the late 1800s and the role of the Catholic church. The tour includes a stop at the St. Paul Cathedral, where Mariah shares the city's Irish legacy. Then the limo will take you to O’Gara’s Pub where you will learn basic Irish words and greetings and enjoy Irish music, songs and stories. While at the pub, we’ll treat you to a whiskey tasting and you’ll have time to order yourself a sumptuous, authentic Irish meal of fish & chips!

Please note: If you need to cancel a tour, please provide 24-hour notice (phone number will be listed on your confirmation email). Our tour guides take their jobs seriously and it is disheartening when their tours are cancelled unexpectedly due to low volunteer participation. In addition, we allocate financial resources to each tour and therefore we incur lost funds when unscheduled cancellations occur. Thank you for your understanding and support!
