Ten Reasons to Love The Irish

Guinness - Need we say more?



Golf - While Scotland is home to St. Andrews, Ireland is home to Rory McIlroy the world's number one ranked player. Tiger Who?

Soap - Beyond the brand "Irish Spring" Ireland boasts a a wealth of boutique soap manufactures and linen suppliers who cater to the hospitality industry.

Lucky Charms - The best breakfast cereal known to man, at least once a year. Lucky Charms are not made in Ireland, but that doesn't stop those in the UK from paying up to $12.00 a box for the stuff on eBay.



Dropkick Murphys - The quintessential Boston band. You never heard of them? Then you're not a Redsox fan are you?



Parades - Boston, New York, Chicago, Charlotte, Savannah and more, a St. Patricks Day Parade is always an excuse to get your green on.



Butter - For some reason butter made in Ireland just tastes better. Exported throughout the Bahamas and Bermuda it is a staple of island breakfast.



Redheads - Think Isla Fisher, Emma Stone even Lindsay Lohan the "Gingers" rock. For Irish born actors here is the list.



Irish Wakes - Funerals are never fun, unless the recently departed was Irish.

Silly Superstitions - Four Leaf Clovers, Horseshoes, Blarney Stone and Pots of Gold. Lawyers would do well to visit Blarney Castle.
