St. Patrick’s Day approaches, and short of flying across the pond to Ireland, there are few places that get more into the spirit than Boston. That’s no surprise when you consider that the Boston Irish Tourism Association reports almost a quarter of Massachusetts residents claims Irish ancestry.
South Boston will host its annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday, March 20. In addition to the main event, dozens of pubs, bars and restaurants host Irish-inspired events around this time.
