Weymouth lured Irish and Irish Americans because jobs were plentiful. Shoemaking was an important industry offering decent paying jobs and job security enabling Irish immigrants and their offspring the ability to save money to buy homes and raise families. Many Irish neighborhoods were established by these skilled laborers. Their descendants celebrate their “Irishness” to the present time with Weymouth’s Annual Irish Heritage Days.
