Oh, I love the Irish. ;-D Esp guys with black hair and blue eyes, like Gabriel Byrne when he was younger.

Enjoy the song! Ahhh. I used to go out to Irish bars with an old boyfriend. *gets nostalgic*

Hmm..nice picspam! Colin AND Stuart!

Have you ever seen the movie "About Adam?" It has Stuart in it and Kate Hudson with an Irish accent. It's a really good movie.

Oh,you must see "Boondock Saints"-you're gonna love it!
Funny and crazy and dark and Irish and simply brilliant.Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus play twin brothers,Willem Dafoe is an FBI agent,who's both gay and homophobic and Billy Connolly as the most dangerous man ever...Fun and snark and graphic violence!
Here,two more piccies if Willem:

highly probable I have some, but diluted a bit ;)
dressed all in green none the less (with my reddish hair and pale skin, I play pretend)

great spam/list, I'll have to see a few of those movies

Woo hoo. If I dye my hair red, I'm mistaken for Irish. ;D

And yes, go see some of those. Secret of Roan Irish and Into the West are both very strong on Irish legends and fairytales - wonderful stuff, but of course a bit sad here and there.

Darnit. Maybe I should have read all the posts instead of just skimming. Yeah. Still an awesome movie.

I'm pretty much a mut, so I'm sure I've got some Irish in my somewhere. Most likely on my Mom's side, because my Dad's side is German going a long way back. But I couldn't drink today even if I wanted to, for I am underaged. :( No, not really sad. 'Cause I'm not really interested.

I am, however, interested in these guys. I know Colin Farrell has probobly slept with everyone in Hollywood by now, but he starts to talk and...guh! I like accents. It's a thing. :)

The green beer can wait. ;-D

I purposely picked a pic of Colin where he looked clean! LOL. He can come off as kind of (kind of?) skanky at times, but god, I love the way he talks. And that Irish charm. Kills me!

Rectify immediately! You'll either love it or hate it, but it MUST BE SEEN.

LOL Darby O'Gill! (That banshee scared the crap out of me when I was a kid, though.)

Thank you for the shamrock, btw! :D

Hee. Oddly enough, it didn't scare me, but it scared my older sis!

And very welcome, hon. *hug*
