Irish Guys on the World Stage.

"The purpose of the Irish guy is to drink and wear trousers."

--Irish Woman, Dublin, to Dan Hull, 2011

But there's more. Never underestimate Irish guys. Today--St. Patrick's Day--is in honor of a Brit captured and sold into slavery by Irish marauders to the chieftain Mil uh in the year 403 to work tending animals in what is now the County of Antrim. After six years, he escaped and returned to England, later becoming a cleric. He eventually returned to northern and western Ireland, and changed that country forever. He is generally credited with turning the Irish from Celtic pagans to Christians. Patrick died on March 17--in either 493 or 460. Never underestimate Irish guys.
