Irish parades, pubs and events in Brooklyn

There’s no need to be Irish by blood to get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit -- and no need to wait until March 17 either.

Brooklyn, the most Irish borough -- tens of thousands have emigrated from The Emerald Isle to its nabes since the 19th century -- has a lot of Irish to offer, with special events taking place all month, in addition to some of the city’s oldest Irish watering holes.

Scroll through for some of our picks.

Irish Haven

This place is so Irish that Martin Scorsese filmed scenes from the Boston-set mob movie "The Departed" here. 5721 Fourth Ave., Sunset Park, 718-439-9893

Farrell's Bar & Grill

A Windsor Terrace landmark, Farrell's has been a home-away-from-home for Irish immigrants since it opened in 1933. Among its oft-told folklore, the first woman to be served at the bar after much protest was Shirley MacLaine in the '70s. 215 Prospect Park West, Windsor Terrace, 718-788- 8779

The Wicked Monk

Take a pilgrimage to this monastery-themed watering hole, which hosts live Irish Seisiuns most Sundays, as well as on St. Patty's Day itself. 9510 Third Ave., Bay Ridge, 347-497-5152
