Meet the Merchant: Irish Eyes Push Cart and Gift Shop

Grace Ann Rose – Irish Eyes Push Cart and Gift Shop
Grace Ann Rose – Irish Eyes Push Cart and Gift Shop

Grace Ann Rose has deep roots in Irish heritage and Quincy Market, which she brings to her Irish Eyes push cart in Quincy Market and her gift shop in Historic Faneuil Hall. Grace Ann’s great-grandparents immigrated to the United States from Donegal, Ireland in the early 1900s. They settled in a home in Charlestown, where four generations have lived since.

Grace Ann’s first job was in the Quincy Market Food Colonnade when she was 15. Years later she came back to help Patrick Sullivan manage the “Touch of Irish” pushcart, which she eventually took over when Sullivan retired.

Irish Eyes specializes in jewelry, giftware, a large selection of Irish clothing including babywear, a huge selection of Claddaugh and Celtic sterling and many more treasures of Ireland

With the Marketplace temporarily closed, Grace Ann is taking orders via her Facebook page @irisheyesfh or her Instagram page @irisheyesboston.
