Spring Lake is the most Irish city in New Jersey, and the United States as a whole at nearly 40% Irish.

The rest of the top ten cities in Jersey for Irish concentration, in descending order: Avon-by-the-Sea, Gloucester City, Sea Girt, Spring Lake Heights, Sea Isle City, Brooklawn, North Wildwood, Port Monmouth, Monmouth Beach, and Belford.

I know many people of Irish descent in Sea Isle! There are Irish shops, and many children in that town take Irish Step-dancing lessons.

The entire Cape May County area is known for the Irish Catholic population, there's a great Irish Festival in Wildwood every September. What a turn-out they get!!
They call this area the "Irish Riviera" if that's any help!http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f60/MurphChessLinus/leprechaun03.gif (broken link)

When I was growing up Spring Lake was known as the Irish Riviera.

Bergenfield is home to the Bergen County St Patrick's day parade. There is an active Irish association headquartered in neighboring Dumont. There is a great Irish pub and there are coeli dances and Irish cultural societies in that part of Bergen County. You'll even meet people who play gaelic football!

The Morristown area has a pretty big Irish population, plus one of the largest St. Patrick's day parades in the state.

I think the town with the highest concentration of Irish people in the USA is actually Upper Darby, PA, which is outside of Philly.
