A friendly harbor
for Irish replica ship

By Kevin Cullen, Globe Staff, 7/25/2003
Andy Brown is Protestant and Sean Hutton is Catholic, but back home in Derry, one of the most tolerant places in Northern Ireland, they share the same local, a emigrant-theme pub called Bound for Boston. So when they sailed into Boston yesterday, aboard a replica 19th-century Irish emigrant ship called the Jeanie Johnston, the two young Derrymen were stunned but pleased to learn there was a pub in Jamaica Plain called . . . the Jeanie Johnston.
