    I visited Ireland a few times to see my parents homeland. There is sometime fascinating about them and the culture. Downtrodden for centuries but persvered and never complained. Rose through thr gutters to become distinguished and powerful in the police, military and politics. As an irish american I just feel for them more than others and would always support them.
    Im an American but I'm irish blood. It is in my veins. This is where I get my determination to succeed no matter what they say.
    Take pride in your culture and heritage. It might not be irish but something else. But for such a small nation to birth so many hard, tough men...it must be genetic. Fighting the british made them rough.

    and then we have Conor

    TS told me to tell you that he's ok, but not quite on the same level as Alan Jouban.

    McGregor is 1-1 (arguably 0-2) against Nate Diaz for crying out loud... If this is the cream of the crop from Ireland... just LOL!

    I remember when he fought over here he had to change his nickname. The Irish Hand Grenade wasnt acceptable for some reason.

    I have never understood this tagging the country of your ancestors,like ''Irish/American''......If I traced my heritage back far enough,i would no doubt end up in Ireland,but I'm not from there,my parents arent from there and my grandparents arent from there,so what the fuck is Irish about that ?

    lmfao I wonder why

    I never did learn how many generations out Marcus Davis was, but I was a fan back in the day. Little known fact (I think) he got Tim Sylvia into MMA, and used to fight at HW as well.

    OP is obviously being sarcastic. Conors tactics including the way he carries himself and represents his nation is beyond embarassing. I wouldn't be suprised if he gets gunned down by a real irish civilian.

    At some point it becomes silly
    But if your parents are from there, or your grandparents still live there why wouldn't you feel a connection to it?
