    Liam Neeson is Irish. He is a Catholic called Liam who calls himself an Irish citizen.

    Yes the shops have started to close already, widespread looting and chaos on the streets, we are getting some rickety old ships together to make the perilous journey to the new country

    Ireland is awesome.

    Dublin is the only city I have seriously considered leaving Montreal for.

    I spent months there for work, never wanted to leave.

    Nah, Ireland is a great country to be.
    But Dublin to is just like Amsterdam, way to crowed and to much made for tourist.
    There are so much better places in Ireland, especially on the west coast. Cork isn't so bad either.

    No word of a lie, he was.

    He worked out of the Montreal office though, he never visited the Dublin office.

    Ultimately the ass was demoted for trying to destroy me, and I got a new boss out of London.

    I'm no fan of the Irish, but people knew what Ireland was before Conor, lol. Yes they are overly arrogant and can't touch Scotland or England when it comes to contributions to the Enlightenment (Philosophy, economics, art, engineering, science, etc) or America for the last 200 years, and even their great intellects like Edmund Burke and Hutcheson chose to move to Great Britain and live in England & Scotland respectively, lol.

    BUT, they do have a strong 4th and 3rd generation migrant population all over the US, The UK (especially Scotland (Glasgow.) and Northern England (Liverpool.) Australia and Canada so their culture and history and identity is always just a person away it seems.

    So even as someone who experiences nonsense with far-left socialist 3rd generation Irish Republicans in my own country, someone whose ancestors have had REPEATED bad experiences with the Irish (I am talking from the 1320's and the 1500's and the 1700's and right up to the 70's.) but it is important to remember, not all Irish people are the Conor nuthugger caricature. The Irish immigrant dude I work with is as pro-US, pro-UK, pro-West and pro-Capitalist as anyone and is humble and friendly. I am the furthest thing from pro-Irish or an SJW but connecting a whole nation with a complex and ancient history and heritage and influence (Scots-Irish aka Ulster Scots influence on the early beginnings of the USA for example......) to Conor and his dick riders is a wee bit silly.

    TLDR

    I disagree with the TS's derision of Ireland based on Conor & Conor dickriders.

    Don't think that "we" is a party of very many.

    I was there ten years ago, and loved every minute of it.

    I was incredibly close to moving there permanently but changes in banking law put us out of business. If I had moved there I would have visited every inch of that beautiful island.

    As you know well Liam Neeson is a taig, Morrison though from East Belfast is a self declared Irish citizen and has spent more of his life in Dublin than Belfast. Stay hugging a cenotaph as the taigs take over wee Protestant 'Ulster' as it inevitably heads to a United Ireland, NI is still "Bratish" but not as "Bratish" as it used to be for a few more years and all that etc <Lmaoo>

    Dead people don't count.

    Neeson, Farell and U2 are they only ones that really count.

    Also, I seen Van Morrison last year and walked out. He's clearly given up.
