Philip Grant, counsel general of Ireland to the Western United States, held a wreath-laying ceremony at the site of the balcony’s collapse. To bagpipe music, Grant, city officials, police and firefighters gathered to lay two wreaths against the building. One wreath, Grant said, stood for the people and government of Ireland, and the other represented the Irish community in the Bay Area. Afterward, a board member of the Irish Network Bay Area draped an Irish flag across the wreaths.
