A weird country that has always been a bit off.
The ones that got out were the smart ones.
And all of them in NYC (where a vast amount of them end up) are left-wing nutcases. Drunks, too.
For anyone interested, I recommend a new book called “Say Nothing” by American Patrick Radden Keefe about the appalling abduction and murder of Jean McConville by Gerry Adams, Delours & Marian Price. What a crazy country and people!
I think that is true. That and 2 World Wars killed all the brave and strong. Think what the gene pool left after all of that.
Then again France was a power house through WW1. Look at them now. They might pull it off. (Not).
That’s why its weird today; more than half a century ago the government asked the US to limit the number of Irish allowed to stem the brain drain.
Ireland only allowed divorce in the 1990s; now they have abortion and “gay marriage” (though Northern Ireland allows neither of those - both the Protestants and Catholics there still have some Christianity). They are low-rent imitations of Americans - and I say that as an Irishman.
