The Celtic Dart Club, bangers and mash, velvety glasses of Guinness, brilliant green walls inside, a St. Patrick’s Day parade outside — you’ll find it all at Patrick Griffin’s pub, one of the city’s most popular Irish bars. Griffin, who hails from Athlone, County Roscommon, bought this place 17 years ago and for 16 of them has been president of the city’s parade, which runs past the front door. On Tuesday nights, Patrick’s features corned beef and cabbage and live Irish music. The menu also has non-Irish food but why go to an Irish pub if not to sample items like McGuinness baby back ribs and mixed grill? ‘‘It’s a great neighborhood bar,’’ Griffin said. ‘‘We also get a fair amount of politicians in for lunch from the State House just down the road.’’ - PAUL E. KANDARIAN
