Chicago is home to a large number of Irish-Americans who have helped to shape the culture and history of the Second City. Today, the Irish is the Chicago’s largest ethnic population with over 201 thousand people – just ahead of Germans and Polish descent. Every year in March, Chicago’s Irish and citizens of all kinds celebrate Irish history and its proud legacy by simply having fun and remembering those who came before from the “old sod”!
