A look beyond the shamrocks and green beer stereotypes to a culturally authentic portrait of the Irish in the Crescent City and their impact on local life.

Local groups such as the New Orleans chapter of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, the Irish Cultural Society and two Irish dance schools help keep some of the traditions alive today.
