New Irish Pub in Boston - Four Green Fields - opening on Friday, February 11, 2011


Boston’s newest Irish pub and restaurant - Four Green Fields - opens today  at One Boston Place in Downtown Boston.

The pub is owned by Colin Breen, who operates the popular Four Green Fields Pub in Tampa Florida. The son of Irish immigrants, Breen's new pub in Boston was recently profiled by The Boston Globe

Named for a song by the late Irish ballad singer Tommy Makem, referring to the four provinces of Ireland, Four Green Fields is dedicated to great food and plenty of draught beers, including an extra-special pint of Guinness.  The venue features a spacious first floor restaurant with an oyster bar, an upstairs lounge named for Irish-American boxing champ John L. Sullivan, and an authentic Irish Thatch Cottage.

Larry Kirwan, founder and lead singer of the band Black 47, said the pub's clientele will be drawn from the worlds of sports, entertainment, broadcasting, literature and all those interested in the art of conversation.  Kirwan is organizing a nightly mix of Irish traditional and rock music, nightly seisiuns, as well as concerts featuring artists like Andy Irvine and Derek Warfield. And, the pub is initiating a literary series of weekly readings by local, national and international authors like Michael Patrick MacDonald and Colin Broderick.
