    Irish/American would be more accurate.

    The Irish in me is from County Longford, although my father says it is from Ulster. I think he is wrong about that. Protestant, yes, but Northern Ireland, no.

    Never before were there

    so many Irish people in Windsor Castle at the same time, dining with the Queen of England. 160 people at the same table! Ireland has come SO very far. We are now equals, and recognised as such. It is surely a major coup. I sincerely hope the few extremists will stop.

    I am Irish but I know almost nothing about

    being Irish. Apparently my looks are pretty typical Irish and I know there was the Irish potato famine. That's pretty much the limit of my knowledge. I've always had a strange fascination with Ireland, though. Lordy, do I want to go there so bad. I want go there for my honeymoon...

    Being Irish Is Something to Be Proud of
