IRISH EYES: Paul and Toni Miner, who own the Lincoln Company -- a local advertising and marketing firm -- made an interesting discovery while vacationing in the Emerald Isle. They noticed the village of Baltimore on a map and made a detour to check it out. It turned out to be a charming seaport where the Miners met pub owner Declan McCarthy, who told them that our own Pride of Baltimore had recently sailed into the harbor and made a big hit with the townspeople. So much so, Dec told them, that he's building a new restaurant in town named -- you guessed it -- The Pride of Baltimore!
