St. Patrick's Day is March 17 and Irish eyes are smiling across the Garden State.

That's because 1.27 million New Jersey residents identify as Irish-American, according to U.S. Census estimates. (About 33,900 also identify as Scotch-Irish).

About 170 towns in New Jersey are at least a quarter Irish, according to Census estimates analyzed by New Jersey 101.5.

The counties with the most Irish-Americans are Monmouth (138,000), Ocean (129,000), Bergen (107,000) and Camden (101,000).

Counties with the greatest concentration of Irish-Americans are Cape May (28 percent), Gloucester (27 percent) and Sussex (24 percent).

Below are the top towns, plus a map where you can find your own.
