Loren Martin Hintz, also known as Marty, was a passionate advocate for Irish culture, community all things Celtic. In 1990, he founded the Irish American Post, a monthly newspaper that was widely distributed in homes and pubs throughout the Midwest. The Post served as a lively source of news and information for thousands of Irish diaspora readers. Marty was one of the founding members of Milwaukee's Irish Fest, serving as its first public relations director and welcoming Irish bands and storytellers to the Hintz household during the early years of the festival. Despite his passing in 2020, Marty will always be remembered as the driving force behind the Irish American Post and a beloved figure in the Irish community.
"Dying is a troublesome business: there is pain to be suffered, and it wrings one's heart; but death is a splendid thing - a warfare accomplished, a beginning all over again, a triumph."
George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish writer
