There's also a preview of St. Patrick's Day parades and cultural activities in March 2011. And local Irish-Americans Helen Brady of Boston Symphony Hall and Tom Butler of Massport are profiled.

The Guide is distributed free at local visitor centers and Irish venues throughout the state.  For more information on where to pick up the Guide, contact irishmassachusetts@comcast.net.
