This guided bus tour features live Irish music and celebrates Chief Francis O'Neill, who was the General Superintendent of Police in Chicago at the turn of the 20th century. He is credited with preserving more than 3,500 traditional Irish songs. The day begins at the pub, with some sustenance provided, followed by a bus tour (with music) down to Mt. Olivet Cemetery, where the chief is buried. Plenty of history is part of the package, and after the tour the bus heads to Clancy's in Oak Lawn for some pizza and beverages.
