Irish-American Take on Obama Trip to Ireland at the Eire Pub in Boston by AP

Associated Press wrote an interesting story on how the Boston Irish responded to President Obama's trip to Ireland this week, by interviewing patrons at the famous Eire Pub in Boston.

The story appeared in the Boston Globe.  

Located at 795 Adams Street in the Adams Village section of Dorchester, the Eire Pub is a popular neighborhood pub in one of Boston's quintessentially Irish-American neighborhoods.

Its popularity is far-reaching.  President Ronald Reagan had a Ballantine Ale the Eire Pub in 1983, according to a Boston Globe story, and in 1992, presidential candidate Bill Clinton also visited the pub with then-Boston Mayor Ray Flynn and sipped a pint of Guinness.
