Here’s to each lad and his darlin colleen,
Here’s to the ones we love dearest and most.
May God bless old Ireland, that’s this Irishman’s toast!”
By Meghan Crozier

Whether you’re singing along to Dropkick Murphy’s at a Red Sox game, or enjoying a Guiness at one of the Irish pubs on every Boston street corner, this city is the place to enjoy one of the most hyped up holiday’s of the year, aside from the night Santa shimmy’s down your chimney.
In addition on March 5th, President Obama proclaimed it to be Irish American Heritage Month, the Irish have stepped up their spirit and are ready to take on the holiday. There are plenty of activities in the area for you and your friends to enjoy. From parades to pub crawls, these events are bound to make for a great holiday. Below are three great ideas for you and your friends to check out.

If you hadn’t noticed from all the shamrocks and green in all the storefront windows, it’s that time of year again when the Irish make their debut on the streets of Boston and the local Celtic punk rockers kick off their annual run of St. Patrick’s Day shows. The price of tickets are a reasonable cost, ranging from $32.50 to $60.00. Unfortunately March 15-16 shows are currently sold out, but there’s still time for March 14th!
