Re: Irish guy

Welcome to EF, plenty of information here and discussions that sometimes out-discuss themselves. Lots of fun.

Re: Irish guy

Hi Brendan. Welcome to the Forum.

Your post has been here at least 45 minutes. I'm surprised nobody's asked you where you're from. I thought it was the standard first question when Irish folk met each other.

Re: Irish guy

Hi Mirfield

I'm from Co Clare in Ireland, thats right on the west of the country... I'm not sure the Irish have really refined their introduction skills, it tends to be let go to the most direct route of common interest, Rugby being a good guess...
