Paddy's day pubs

St Patrick's day is Saturday so the best bet is an Irish bar and Leigh Fergus' latest article in The European can help me out as he's picked Paris' top 5:

"No tour of Irish bars in Paris would be complete without a glass of Liffey water at Kitty O’Shea’s.

1. The longest-running Irish pub in Paris—and very possibly France—is Kitty O’Shea’s, near the business and shopping area of l’Opéra. Opened in 1986 to look like the original pub in Dublin, the décor is authentic and was transported from Ireland. Named after the mistress of Charles Stewart Parnell, the leader of the movement for Home Rule for Ireland, this is a friendly, lively pub, especially popular with the rugby crowd. As the final matches of the Six Nations* rugby tournament are on St. Patrick’s Day this year, you can be sure this bar will be bursting with fans jostling to get a view of play on the giant screen. Come here for good Irish home cooking (including homemade Irish stew, beef and Guinness pie, full Irish breakfast with fresh soda bread, and salmon from Connemara) as well as traditional live music. (The bar staff speak English.)
Kitty O’Shea’s, 10 rue des Capucines, 2nd arrondissement. Nearest Métro station: Opéra. Tel. +33 (0)14015-00302.
