Is Boston becoming "less Irish"? And what does that even mean?

Reporter Kevin Cullen of the Boston Globe recently wrote a pair of articles examining the ebbing tide of Irish immigrants to Boston and the growing number of Irish nationals now living in Boston who are deciding to move back to Ireland. He cited a post-9/11 unwillingness on the part of local police and immigration officials to "look the other way", a booming economy at home, and a perception that Americans are now less welcoming to Irish immigrants than ever.
