The former “Mayor of Montague,” Seamus O’Toole, will be honored posthumously on Tuesday at Borough President Marty Markowitz’s annual St. Patrick’s Day breakfast.

O’Toole, the co-owner of the beloved Eamonn‘s restaurant and bar at 174 Montague St., died in a freak accident last September.

The breakfast starts at 8 am at Borough Hall. Marty, who is the head of the Brooklyn chapter of the Loyal League of Yiddish Sons & Daughters of Erin, is co-hosting the event with Brooklyn District Attorney Charles (Joe) Hynes and Al O’Hagan of Brooklyn’s Baile na nGael.

Per Marty’s press release, the other honorees include:

  • Robert B. Catell (Celtic Appreciation Award)
  • Cody M. McCone (Irishman of the Year)
  • Judge Bernard J. Graham (Justice William T. Bellard Memorial)
  • John Khani (Commodore John Barry Award)
