BITA Releases Winter issue of Travel & Culture Guide
Free Magazine Highlights Irish Cultural Events in Massachusetts & New England

(Boston) - The Boston Irish Tourism Association (BITA) released its Travel & Culture Guide (2014-15 winter issue) of cultural activities in Massachusetts and New England.

The 28-page color magazine details upcoming holiday concerts, dances and theatre from November 2014 to March 2015. It lists selected Irish pubs, gift shops and cultural groups in the Bay State plus hotels and travel agencies for visitors from out-of-town.

The Guide is available for free at tourism centers across the state and at museums, hotels and cultural venues. See distribution centers.

Among the people profiled in this issue are Keith Lockhart of the Boston Pops; Melissa Farrington of Live Nation, and pianist Tom Garvey of Lawrence, plus reviews on current books and CDs. A section on traveling to Ireland in 2015 features Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Galway.

The Boston Irish Tourism Association was formed in 2000 to promote cultural tourism year round. It publishes three travel and culture guides each year, and has created an Irish Heritage Trail highlighting Irish landmarks in Boston and around the state.

More than 24% of residents in Massachusetts claim Irish ancestry, making it the most Irish state in the United States, according to the US Census.
