Albany, N.Y. -- The Albany Trolleys have a new tour that will be offered twice before St. Patrick's Day to share the rich legacy of The Irish in Albany. The tour will begin at 10 a.m. on March 10 and March 14 at the Albany Heritage Area Visitors Center at Quackenbush Square, corner of Broadway and Clinton Avenue. The first stop on the tour will be the newly opened Irish American Heritage Museum where tour goers will see the exhibit, The Irish and the Erie Canal. From there, an expert tour guide will take tour goers for a first-hand experience of Capital City sites and how the Irish have influenced politics, art and more.
