Actually every day tis a great day to be Irish. Well then.

Google Kerry, Ireland or Ring of Kerry, Ireland to see where my grandparents were born. Glad to be a 2nd generation native born American. My father and all uncles fought in the Pacific in WWII. All came home highly decorated. Me ? Cu Chi, RVN.

Kerry.....Have never said I am Irish-American, just American (of Irish descent).
