The Irish Pub
The Irish pub is a magical place where friendships are forged, drinks are full and laughter fills the air. However, you do not have to travel all the way to Ireland to experience great Irish music and a friendly atmosphere. A good Irish pub is in almost every city, in every country around the world. They say imitation is the purest form of flattery, if that is true then Ireland can be proud they have shared a great pub experience with almost everyone on the planet. What’s next? Perhaps coffee shops around the world that imitate the coffee shops in Ireland?
Hollywood and Ireland? It does not seem to fit does it? Well, for Colin Farrell it does. Colin, born in Castleknock Dublin, Ireland, and has become one of the most popular movie actors in all of Hollywood. His uncle and father even played football for the Shamrock Rovers. Colin has been in many big name movies such as Minority Report, S.W.A.T, Phone Booth and Miami Vice. So it looks like the Irish have even had their influence on Hollywood.
Having one of the best rugby players to ever play the game is reason enough to be proud, and Ireland has Brian O’Driscoll. However, Brian is not only a great rugby player, holding many records; he is also a great person as well. He commits effort and time to children’s hospitals, as well as working with children that come from troubled homes. Being great at a sport is one thing, but being great at a sport and great as a person is rare. Ireland can be proud it has O’Driscoll.
