For those who live in Boston the fact that more people here have ties to Ireland than any other city in the country will hardly be a surprise.
The Boston Business Journal is reporting that according to the US Census Bureau, 19% of the Boston population consider themselves to be of Irish descent. Only eight other metros are at least 10% Irish. Notice a trend with the population in the northeast?
The top 5 metro areas include:
1. Boston, 18.87%
2. Albany, 15.92%
3. Philadelphia, 14.60%
4. Providence, 12.23%
5. Bridgeport-Stamford, 11.69%
