SCITUATE — It may be 30 miles from the traditional St. Patrick’s Day breakfast in South Boston, but the town of Scituate held its own shamrock-studded breakfast Sunday morning, a Republican answer to the Southie show that draws a who’s who of the state’s Democrats.
“It’s a little tradition that has grown. We’re competing a bit with the South Boston festivities,” said State Senator Robert Hedlund who emceed the event, now in its fourth year. “This is certainly not on the scale of Boston. But this is getting better every year,” he said. “The Boston one is getting too sterile. . . . It’s too predictable.”
