Metro North train from Grand Central to the Woodlawn station is quickest transit and stops only a few blocks from Katonah Ave. By subway the 2 train to Nereid Ave is a walkable half mile to the east of McLean Ave.
Do NOT take that mode of transportation. Take the 16 or 34 bus to the end of the IRT 4 line at Jerome. Also you have the Woodlawn metro north on Webster Ave and 233rd st. All very good suggestions by the posters where to look. Looks like a lot of the Irish that once lived in Woodside have moved to Maspeth and Middle Village. Woodlawn IMO is the biggest Irish area in NYC. Metro North about a 30 minute ride into Grand Central. Bus and 4 train your looking at a hour? Also a express bus into the City. Walk into any Irish Butcher or Deli and you will get any apt. Riverdale has a decent amount of Irish also. Riverdale Steakhouse will help any any new immigrant from Ireland.

Bars, as well. This is why I find it hard to believe that some can't find a place:

As long as potentials tenants have key money, I can't see all Irish landlords demanding NYC levels of employment & income history, especially if the newcomers are from the same locale back in Ireland.

Woodlawn, Woodside, Breezy Point, and Marine Park are very Irish neighborhoods
