Following the Irish Heritage Trail

By Natalie Grant, USA, January 2013

No reviews, be the first!

People of Irish descent make up the largest ethnic community in Massachusetts, and any discussion about American history, immigration, the 18th century, or historical landmarks wouldn’t be complete without the Irish Heritage Trail—a set of 20 sites downtown and in Back Bay, as well as 50 others in the surrounding cities and neighborhoods and throughout Massachusetts.

The best place to begin is just east of Rose Kennedy Greenway at the Rose Kennedy Garden, after which you can visit the statues of Kevin White and James Michael Curley (four-time mayor known as the Purple Shamrock).
