2015: Notre Dame vs. Boston College at Fenway Park, Boston
Much more than a football game will be on offer for University of Notre Dame fans traveling to Boston next month for the 2015 Shamrock Series.
Leading up to the off-site home football game between the Fighting Irish and the Boston College Eagles at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 21 (Saturday) in Fenway Park, a series of academic and service events will be held in Boston throughout the Shamrock Series weekend.
The Notre Dame Law School will present a commemoration titled “The Boston Massacre: Re-Imagining the Trial” at 6 p.m. Nov. 19 (Thursday) in Boston’s Old South Meeting House, 310 S. Washington St. Notre Dame law students will join Boston College law students in arguments that reenact the Boston Massacre Trial 245 years ago and celebrate the trial’s importance as an early and enduring example of the rule of law in America.
This year’s Boston trip will long be considered one of the most successful Shamrock Series weekends, featuring well-attended academic events, an overwhelmingly fruitful service project, a beautiful Mass attended by hundreds, a jam-packed fan fest in the historic Fenway Park neighborhood, and a win by the football team that elevated its record to 10-1 and maintained its place in the hunt for a national playoff berth.
