I married a real Irishman. He’s about as straight as they come. I drink far more. People underestimate the repression they feel. The real Irish I mean.
I’m still teaching him to drive and to swim. To look people in the eye when he speaks. You think they are a nation of drinking fools, but they are a nation of writers and singers from so far back.
Born from repression. So far forward, but so far back just the same. Lovely. Irish is beauty.
Eh…? I don’t feel repressed. Like every other Irish person I love to beat the English in everything we can(especially rugby :D), but otherwise you’re taking all that jazz way too seriously…
Yup, got a few bout last couple of march 17th’s in cork…
if ya can’t shamrock shakes in mcdonalds mixed with vodka is the next best thing!!
Heh, I actually live in Cobh and I’ve never been in Cork for Paddy’s day. If I’m off work this year I might head on up
This repression shit is a bit stupid to be hearing bout all the time. Sure, we sometimes look forward to playing the English more than others but that has arse-all to do with repression!
And I don’t know what swimming and learning to look ppl in the eye ha to do with being Irish but anywho…
do ya - cork is a good spot to go out for paddy’s day allright. Used to get the green pints in the Western star, but due to some mostrosity that is closed now. I would think the Thirsty would be the best spot for the green pints, or I would think Bob Fox’s would be a good spot to spend the day this year…
