    They got off the boat looking for gold in the streets and got a Union uniform instead..
    The Irish, like the many ethnic groups that make up the stew pot called America, have settled in well. As long as everyone comes here "legally" America has a fighting chance..
    "Why do the Irish and everyone who wants to be Irish that day celebrate Saint Patrick's Day?" Good question, hell I don't know. We use any excuse in the world for a party, even a good Irish wake.. Work hard, play hard.
    Happy Saint Patrick's day...
    On reflection I think it's because they are not happy with just being American, it seems like they want to have a separate identity. I come across the same thing here in Canada, they have starry eyes about having Irish ( or whatever) roots when the fact is that their descendants left Ireland because it is a total dump. The ones with brains and a bit of get up and go left.

    Mick

    thats because you don't understand, as with folks who don't understand something, they question and riddicule it

    first let me say F*CK the queen and royal family, they are german anyway, second the english have repressed the Irish for 800 years, you and Big Don approve of that?????????????, I am sure if some dumb C*NT wanted to suppress your country ( oh thats right she already does) you would see it much differently

    Most of the Irish in America or let me rephase that Most" Irish Americans" were forced to come to America, by a force starvation policy of the english gov't, in affect they were exiled to the US and Canada, or sent as convicts to Austrailia. The Irish gov't recognizes this,
    many were also force to leave for economic reasons in the last century

    Irish Americans are considered exiles, when we return Home, we are Irish again as long as we are on Irish soil ( the Republic of Ireland)
    same rules and rights. unless you have dual citizenship that changes, when you leave Irish soil

    Mick's quote" Ireland a dump" lets see is your observation based on actual survey of the country on your part or Bias from subject of the dumb C*NT in westminster,
    Ireland is very pretty, somewhat socialist ( so is canada) and if it is backwards it due to subjucation by the wonderful english

    my third point if you don't like the Irish move on and start your own thread on how wonderful the UK is and the dumb c*nt and her family are, I promise not to lower myself with my negative opinions on your thread
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.
