(BOSTON) -- The Boston Irish Tourism Association (BITA) has released its 2019 summer/fall issue of Travel & Culture magazine, a compendium of Irish festivals and concerts, culinary, cultural and literary activities taking place in Massachusetts and throughout New England.
This issue has feature stories on Newport, RI and Rockport, MA, two cultural destinations worth visiting in New England. It has summer music, sports and educational opportunities at the Irish Cultural Centre in Canton and a description of Tanglewood's summer season with Boston Symphony, Boston Pops and musical guests. There is also a remembrance of AOH leader David R. Burke, and updates of Irish-American commerations at Deer Island, John Boyle O'Reilly homage and the Irish Immigration Exhibit at the Massachusetts State House.
BITA is celebrating its 19th year as a year-round, cultural tourism organization that promotes the state’s largest ethnic community. The US Census reports that nearly 24% of all Massachusetts residents claim Irish ancestry.
BITA publishes three issues of Travel & Culture each March, June and November, and has developed the Boston’s Irish Heritage Trail, which highlights Irish landmarks throughout Boston and around the state.
