I went last year and had a great time. Lots of entertainment and variety for all. Really enjoyed watching the Gaelic Football matches !
"Gaelic games are sports played in Ireland and consist of Gaelic Football and Hurling. The Boston Irish Festival will be featuring Gaelic games on Saturday and Sunday. Come and enjoy a great spectator sport of Boston’s finest Gaelic footballers."
"The Boston Irish Festival is delighted to announce its partnership with Liam Harney of Harney Academy of Irish Dance to launch a Feis at the 2013 Boston Irish Festival. A Feis is an Irish dance competition that is as delightful to participate in as to watch. We welcome participants young and old, novice or experienced. And if you love to watch Irish dance, then this is the perfect place! We’ll have 5 stages of non-stop Irish dance all day Saturday, June 8 beginning at 8:30am."
