BIR profiles Flaherty

We here at the Lit Drop would be remiss if we didn’t mention the recent profile that the Dorchester Reporter’s sister paper, the Boston Irish Reporter, has on Michael Flaherty, City Councillor At-Large and a candidate for mayor.

Flaherty's Irish roots are as deep as those his family planted in Boston a few generations ago. His parents were born in Boston, but look back a bit further and you'll see three of Flaherty's great-grandparents on his father's side were born in County Galway. Flaherty's mom's family (the McGlones) hails from Galway, Monahan, and Cork.
