Happy St. Patrick’s Day! If you’re looking for an Irish connection to Baltimore... you don’t have to look past its name. Nestled at the southwestern tip of County Cork, with a harbor in the North Atlantic, is the village of Baltimore, Ireland. We wondered on this St. Patrick’s Day, what’s life like in another Baltimore? 

With Sheilah Kast by phone from Baltimore, Ireland, to talk about it is Kieran Cotter. He owns a grocery store on the main square in town and captains the village lifeboat.
