The homes on Franklin Street are still considered a crime scene.  “I was at my brother’s on Monday and there were forensic people everywhere. I took a picture on my phone but I had to delete it,” Brendan says.

The Morrissey brothers are grateful that their brush with the killer Tsarnaev brothers ended as it did.  And though they maintain close ties with Ireland – Brendan and his family travel there at least once a year – they’re glad they made the move to Boston, even after all that has happened.

“This is my second home,” Brendan says. “We have lots of friends here and our lives are here. And right now, we just feel very fortunate to be alive.”
