On Friday, September 14, the Irish Cultural Centre would like to welcome famed talk show host, award winning journalist, New York Times best-selling author, and political reporter Mr. Howie Carr to speak on the timely subject of James “Whitey” Bulger. Carr has written three best-selling books on the topic of Boston crime and Whitey Bulger, including The Brothers Bulger and Hitman .
Before Bulger fled in 1994, Carr was such an implacable foe of the serial killing gangster that Whitey tried to kill him as he left his house in suburban Boston — an incident reported in 2006 on 60 Minutes. Carr is the host of a daily syndicated four-hour radio program heard throughout New England, and is a member of the national Radio Hall of Fame in Chicago. He won a National Magazine Award in 1985 for Essays & Criticism in Boston Magazine.
