Video tour of Boston's Irish Heritage Trail



As part of the St. Patrick's Day round-up of parades, concerts, cultural events and the heritage and history of the Irish in Massachusetts, Boston.com has created a video tour of Boston's Irish Heritage Trail.

Click here to see the video, which is produced by Michael Saunders and features reporter Courtney Holland visiting the Boston Omni Parker House, the Black Rose Pub, and various stops along the Trail, including the Boston Irish Famine Memorial, Old Granary Burying Ground, and statues of Kevin White and James Michael Curley.

The Irish Heritage Trail was created by the Boston Irish Tourism Association to explore the city's Irish presence dating back to the 18th century.
