Annual political roast marks first appearance from new Gov. Maura Healey; live coverage featured on Caught in Southie’s Instagram live and local broadcast and live stream on Boston Neighborhood Network and WROL Irish Radio

BOSTON, March 1, 2023 – The annual St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast hosted by Sen. Nick Collins returns the iconic Ironworkers Local 7 union hall in South Boston on Sunday, March 19, with Gov. Maura Healey making her debut as the state’s first elected female governor.

“We are excited to have the Governor for the first time in her capacity. She’s got a great sense of humor and is very popular in town,” said Collins, who will emcee the annual political roast for his fourth time. “And it is great to be back with our friends at the Ironworkers Local 7, who have welcomed us back with open arms!”

The breakfast will be held before a live audience from 9 a.m.-noon in the Ironworkers Local 7 union hall at 195 Old Colony Ave. in South Boston. Enjoy live behind-the-scenes coverage and interviews on CaughtInSouthie’s Instagram. Caught in Southie is a popular female-owned hyper-local media site. South Boston’s own Maureen Dahill, founder and editor of Caught In Southie, will provide color commentary for the big event.

The event will also be broadcast on live TV via Boston Neighborhood Network, which is available on Comcast, RCN and other providers in Boston. It will also air live on WROL Irish Radio 950 AM.

“Partnering with Caught in Southie is part of our ongoing effort to bring the breakfast to new audiences via social media, so people can enjoy this uniquely Boston tradition wherever they may be,” said Collins. “We’re also excited to continue our media partnerships with Boston Neighborhood Network, which will bring the show into the homes of Boston residents, and WROL, which will provide a free radio broadcast to those in and around the city.”

The breakfast annually features a who’s who of Boston politics, including members of Congress, the governor and other state constitutional officers, the mayor of Boston, Irish dignitaries, members of the city council and more. Curragh’s Fancy will again provide music.

More details on this year’s show to come as speakers and guests are confirmed.
