March is a big month for Americans. We have Mardi Gras, International Women’s Day, and the Spring Equinox. For the Irish, St. Patrick’s Day celebrates the Roman Catholic feast of the patron saint of Ireland. He died on March 17, 461. In this episode, we explore the history of Irish immigrants in Newport. Our guest is Mike Slein, president of the Museum of Newport Irish History. Buck and Helena chat with Mike about how the Irish built and shaped our ‘city by the sea’. Listen in!
