GUEST,The O'Meara BS: What have the Irish ever done for us (80* d) RE: BS: What have the Irish ever done for us 20 Nov 02


The Irish have given us:
40 million of our citizens
John Kennedy, Chester Arthur, James Buchanan, Andrew Jackson, Ronald Reagan, etc.,
The roots of much of our traditional music,
The workers who built many of our big buildings and all of our railroads,
Guiness, Harp, Bushmill's and Jameson,
Celts,
Boston,
The soldiers in most of our wars,
Barry Fitzgerald
Ella Fitzgerald (well, maybe not...)
The Irish Tenors,
The biggest non-holiday celebration in the world,
Priests, cops, firemen, lawyers; the glue that holds our society together,
Halloween,
The Clancy Brothers, Dennis Day, Carmel Quinn, Tommy Makem, Seamus Kennedy etc,
Dance,
Conversation and literature,
A few million other things,
and me.
