From the Guinness Storehouse:
The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Ireland, welcomed four U.S. mayors of cities named "Dublin," including Tim Sbranti, Mayor of Dublin, CA for St. Patrick's Day inside the Guinness Storehouse, where St. Patrick's Day celebrations were officially launched globally by the pulling of the first pint of Guinness.
Dublin, Ireland, celebrated its namesake with four U.S. officials and mayors of cities named "Dublin" this weekend for St. Patrick's Day...one of the largest gatherings ever of mayors of cities with the same name...including Mayor Sbranti.
This year approximately 120,000 people arrived in Dublin, Ireland, for the St. Patrick's Day festivities. On Saturday, March 16th, Guinness Storehouse, Ireland’s #1 tourist attraction, marked a new record by inviting just under 9,500 of these visitors through its doors in one day.
