While showering there I was thinking away to myself about how much Chewy Louie has added to the forum in recent weeks and months and it got my mind wandering further onto our members scattered across the globe. Then I widened my thoughts to consider just how great the Irish Diaspora are and have been for the country.
So I’m moved to start this thread to applaud all things globally Irish. Some born in Ireland, some born elsewhere, some not even all that Irish just inspired by the greatness of our peoples.
I’d encourage others to post with their own favourites, this is just a few persons and institutions that spring to mind immediately.
