The Irish mixed grill goes for $12.99 and includes a pork chop, chicken breast, Irish sausage, black and white puddings, fries, Irish beans, and a grilled tomato. You might be waited on by Marguerite, who came to the States five years ago from Cong, which sits on Lough Corrib and is famous as the setting for the 1952 John Ford classic, ‘‘The Quiet Man.’’ David Bligh, 35, son of owner Huey Bligh, describes the pub: ‘‘There are two scenes here. You’ve got the first- and second-generation Irish, and those who are just off the boat. Most of them come from Galway, and this area really caters to them. It’s like a second family.’’ On March 17, he says, ‘‘The nurses from St. Elizabeth’s will be banging on the door at 8 a.m. They won’t be here to get drunk; it’s just part of their routine. They’re the breakfast club.’’ There will be live music or a DJ, and pipers will walk through several times. ‘‘It’s like going to an Irish wedding,’’ Bligh says. ‘‘There will be a really good buzz throughout the day.’’ - RON DRISCOLL
