East Boundwood [49,5]
Ireland Drive is located in the eastern part of East Boundwood.
Ireland Drive, before the outbreak, was incredibly well known for being a popular location for the St. Patrick's Day celebrations on March 11. On this day, it would be the centre stage for the drunken rage-filled riot that would overflow East Boundwood in its entirety. The most famous rampage happened in 1976, where a huge number of drunken part goers turned violent when upper-class citizens of West Boundwood came dressed in red and pointed their noses up at the St. Patrick's Day celebrators. The confrontation turned ugly and 9 deaths were recorded in the wave of drunken violence. Police were on call but were also drunk, in typical St. Patrick's day fashion.
A well-known victim of this was Ferris Duncan, the branch manager of Nursey Bank, who died trying to defend his store from looters.
