We could use skilled immigrants in the South, where I live.

That is one thing we are. We are skilled workers who work hard. I have been told on many occasions that we are a great bunch of workers by people all over the world.

NYC is expensive and parts of it are really dense, that it really can make you feel claustrophobic. Don't know what you do and you don't need to tell us.

Never been to Australia. However, there is some recent Irish immigration to Montreal Canada. It features a colder winter than Ireland would, but what an interesting city. Do you speak French or do you want to learn? (There are Anglophones in Montreal, too). I think Toronto is Canada's economic engine, but if it's going to be cold, I'd pick Montreal because it's way more fascinating.
No I want to go to either NYC or Chicago. I dont want to go to the West Coast as I did not like it. I loved NYC and the likes of Boston and Chicago. I did not like LA or San Francisco. Well SF was not to bad. Aer Lingus flies from Dublin to NYC, Chicago, Boston, Washington, Orlando and they are LAX will soon be on the list I think. SF dont fly to SF I dont think from Dublin. They might start soon though.

If you like Boston and NYC, then the Albany-Schenectady-Troy area of NY would be a happy, more affordable medium. It also has a high Irish American percentage and is about 2 hours from both of those areas. Scranton PA also has a high Irish percentage.

When people on this thread refer to Irish neighborhoods, are they referring to places where the residents' ancestors came to the U.S. a hundred years ago or earlier, or to places where it is common to hear Irish accents? God bless.

Thanks for the info buddy
I like big cities thats why I like New York and Chicago. New York is really expensive which is a kick in the teeth because of what I want to do over there. I want to get citizenship and then join the FDNY or NYPD.

Irish neighborhoods in Boston feature both characteristics. There is still a lot of immigration, and I would imagine that many are attracted to places with historic ties to Ireland. The largest Irish populations are in places like Boston, NYC, Philadelphia, Chicago. I suspect those are the major emigration targets.

I was interested in places like woodlawn NY, which have significant numbers of irish people who have immigratred within say, the last 3 years.

Sometimes the former and sometimes both.

It is common in Northeastern cities for those of an Irish background to work in the Fire or Police department.

I think you've already answered your question. That said, people who really want to live in NY find a way to do so. It's a great place if you have your heart set on it.
