John J. Moakley Federal Courthouse

Northern Avenue

US Congressman Joe Moakley from South Boston had an illustrious career in politics that lasted nearly 50 years. During that time he championed jobs and healthcare for the people of his working class district, helped create immigration reform on Capital Hill, and brought attention to the Salvadoran death squads killing priests and peasants. "The Moakleys are from County Cork. My paternal grandmother was a Connolly from Galway," he told a local newspaper. The Moakley Courthouse on Fan Pier overlooks Boston Harbor, and offers a variety of public and education tours.
