If you’re not living in Ireland, the next best place to be Irish is Boston, my home city. There are tons of Irish pubs and enough Irish citizens to give an Irish brogue and provide the craic. The latest US Census revealed that the most Irish urban area is the Boston metro area with 20% of those living there claiming Irish ancestry. We can thus consider Boston to be the 33rd county of Ireland. Visit the Irish Central for more details about the demographics of Irish Americans.
