It's not Channel Irish, but Irish Channel.  It's part of the "uptown
district," which is really south.  Compass directions mean nothing in New
Oreleans.  If you want to find the heart of the Irish Channel, look up St.
Alphonsus Catholic Church or St. Mary's Assumption Catholic Church.  They're
the two that are still in use.  Both are gorgeous in their art work, and,
supposedly, St. Mary's Assumption has a saint buried in the floor. !
