Boston's Irish Heritage Trail, Guided Tours on March 16, 17

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day the Boston Irish Tourism Association is offering guided tours of the Boston Irish Heritage Trail.

The 75 minute walk led by an experienced tour guide takes you on 300 fascinating years of Boston’s unique Irish history and heritage.  

You’ll discover the Irish role in the Revolutionary War, learn about the 19th century Famine generation and the Irish part in the Civil War.  And you’ll discover famous politicians - from Curley and White to Collins and the Kennedys - who put their indelible stamp on the history of the city and the nation. 

The tour begins at the Visitor Information Center on Boston Common (note: March tours include sites 1-13 only) at these dates/times: 

Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 2:00 p.m.
Sunday, March 17, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

$15 per adult, $8 for children under twelve
