UPDATE: The Limerick Leader has revised its story and now calls Linehan merely ONE of Boston's top politicians. You know what this calls for, of course:
There once was a paper in Hibernia
That seemed to confuse Boston with Serbia
A man named Linehan
They called the top strongman
Gave local writers a hernia
Bah, you think Bill Linehan is running away from a stupid breakfast? What need does Boston's most powerful politician have of a roast when he can spread his graciousness to the auld sod? Or so we gather from reading a paean to Linehan in the Limerick Leader, the newspaper in the Irish metropolis where Linehan will be spending St. Patrick's Day.
BOSTONâ€™s top politician will be the guest of honour at Limerickâ€™s St Patrickâ€™s Day parade this year. ...
Meanwhile, Bostonâ€™s second most powerful politician, Mayor Marty Walsh says the start of a new daily service between Shannon and Logan Airport will aid business opportunities between the two cities.
