    Yep, the Irish, if it weren't for whiskey they'd rule the world. I can thank them for the Kennedy's also. Wonder what they're drinking over there?

    All Irishman are not drunkerds.

    I am an Irishman and I do not drink.

    Why can't you take a post in the spirit that it is given, without the ethnic slurr.

    I love the Irish, now that they're not killing each other because the other guy is the wrong brand of Christian. Nothing like going into an Irish pub in "Southie" (Boston) and saying "God bless all here." Even though I'm not a 'mick' always got a hardy welcome. Everyone's Irish in a pub!

    Are youan Irishman or an American? I don't appreciate political advice from a people who are a bunch of political liberals and think Americans or anybody else should make a decision about our leaders based on whether the spouse is attractive or makes a living by the production of and/or sales of alcohol. I am glad you're not an alcoholic, I am sorry that you are so thin skinned as to take my remark so personal. My regrets that I offended you.

    May you be in heaven an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

    You do realize the original post was a joke, right?

    I hope you don't mean me. My Irish friends, of which I'm happy to say I have many, call themselves "micks" as a sign of honor. As my name is Michael, they usually include me. As I said, I love the Irish for how they make you feel like one of them.

    Note: I didn't say "pegga ma hon..."

    Once again someone makes a post and some go out of their way to find wrong in it. If the colonist had argued about everything like the members of this furum do there would never have been a 2A or constitution and we would still be subjects of the King or Queen.

    again this site is about open carry not Ireland

    I work in Ireland as a consultant. I am one of the few Americans who has a Irish FAC (Firearms certificate) I hunt in Ireland. I am also a former board member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians the largest world wide Irish organization

    I am not a mick, I aman American of Irish decent,real Irish people don't call themselves mick's, they also don't walk into pubs and say bless all in this house and they don't say anything about "may the road rise to meet you" or the all time favorite "top o the morning" Thats all hollywood. No wonder they thinkwe are idiots, and at times we are

    I don't take exception to the op or his post only the naive and bias comments that followed

    and michael your irish name is Mihail (me-Hall)

    I don't care if your wife or sister or cousin has red head hair that means nothing( there are more blondes in Erie than redheads)or that your scot-irish or whatever, and I don't care if you find the thread funny.

    this post has no business on this site

    off for a smithwick's ( beer made by guinness), bloody yanks are enough to drive a man to drink
