If it’s the Sunday closest to St. Patrick’s Day, it’s the time for the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in South Boston – and the political roast that precedes it.
Join Boston.com and “Political Intelligence’’ this morning as I live blog and live tweet from the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.
Click on the box below about that time to see my reports and photos.
The roast was started by former Boston mayor and Massachusetts Governor James Michael Curley and really reached its local famed under the guidance of former Senate President William M. Bulger.
Representative Stephen F. Lynch and his successor as South Boston’s state senator, Jack Hart, have maintained the tradition.
The Wolfe Tones will be providing music.
