|The Boston Irish Honors 2017 Exemplary Boston Irish Journalist: Kevin CullenBoston Irish Reporter / 17 d. 15 h. 50 min. ago more|
Kevin CullenEditor’s note: When Boston Irish Reporter publisher Ed Forry approached Kevin Cullen about accepting a Boston Irish Honors award for his exemplary career in journalism, Kevin told Ed that he would “jot down a few words” of background information on his life and times. Those “few words” follow: I was born in the old Richardson House, which was then part of the Boston Lying-In Hospital that later merged with Brigham and Women’s Hospital. My mother was from South Boston and my father was from Malden, where my family settled and where I grew up.

While the term “family values” has morphed into cliché among cynics, the words have never been cliché to the Kennedys.

R.J. DonovanIf you foresee disaster looming in a friend’s romantic relationship, is it fair game to speak up? And if you do speak up, will your criticism ruin your own relationship with that friend? Those are the challenges faced in “Robyn is Happy,” kicking off the fifth season at Hub Theatre Company of Boston. Performances run through Nov. 11 at the First Church of Boston. All performances are “pay-what-you-can.”
|Moynihan’s fiddle, Chaimbeul’s harp insinuate themselves into a listener’s earBoston Irish Reporter / 17 d. 16 h. 14 min. ago more|
Sean SmithThere’s nothing in the Musician’s Universal Handbook that says you have to be friends with your bandmates: creative differences, artistic temperament, hours of rehearsal, schlepping to and from gigs – all that can be pretty demanding on a relationship. But the fiddle-and-harp duo of Brighton residents Jenna Moynihan and Mairi Chaimbeul doesn’t have many problems on that score, the two sharing not only an address but also a fondness for long train rides and, according to Moynihan, “1990s dance parties,” among quite a few other things.

|• Trump’s ‘fake news’ on an Irish tax rate; • When an Irishman spoke for the PilgrimsBoston Irish Reporter / 17 d. 16 h. 20 min. ago more|
Peter F. Stevens, BIR StaffA Grand, Green Lie – When it comes to the Emerald Isle, President Donald Trump was the one – surprise, surprise – peddling “fake news,” which are the words Ireland’s Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, used to characterize recent comments from the White House. In a recent comment to reporters, Trump said, “I hear that Ireland is going to be reducing their corporate rates down to 8 percent from 12.” He was talking about his determination to lower US corporate tax rates.
|Trump puts us in reverse gear, makes America less greatBoston Irish Reporter / 17 d. 16 h. 21 min. ago more|
By James Dolan Special to the Reporter It’s all about winning. President Trump sees the world divided between winners and losers. He’s the winner-in-chief and opponents are losers incapable of recognizing his unique skills or displaying the deference to which he is entitled. He views himself more as a king than as a public servant. He sees former President Obama as an adversary. Having failed to disqualify his predecessor by challenging his citizenship, he has chosen to undo his accomplishments.
|Brexit presents a threat to Ireland and the worldBoston Irish Reporter / 17 d. 16 h. 22 min. ago more|
Joe LearyAt first, no one took the Brexit vote seriously. Few believed that the British would actually leave the European Union (EU). But the decision has become a reality and Ireland and the rest of the world could be among its casualties. The EU was originally set up so that the 29 countries of Europe could trade among themselves without custom duties. The union also encouraged free travel with no passport control between countries that had so often gone to war with one another.
