THE IRISH Irish police officers joining the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations The first Irish immigrants to Chicago worked as laborers, helping build the Illinois and Michigan Canal (see p118) in the mid-1800s. By 1870, the Irish represented over 13 percent of the city’s population. Settled mostly in the South Side industrial town of Bridgeport, they soon became a powerful force in city politics. Over the years, there have been eight Irish mayors. An Irish tradition not to be missed is a foaming glass of Guinness beer at one of the city’s many Irish pubs.
