    I genuinely found out only a few weeks ago that I am an Irish Citizen and that is not a joke! I am actually a full-blown citizen of the Emerald Isle and didn't know it!

    Sunday night, I will be at an ice hockey match, so I might have a Guinness or three before it and maybe a Jamisons to chase it down

    Drunken youths out on the street, covered in their fleg of choice, ruining the dayday everyone else. Sounds the same to me.

    They genuinely ruin everything in NI these days. If there is a free event on, on my day off, it basically ruins the day, as I either have to sit at home, or put up with swarms of them.

    I first went to Norn Iron on Paddy’s day, a good few years ago and it was amazing for me! I went to Belfast, for an ice hockey match. I am well known in UK ice hockey, but had never been to Belfast, so didn’t expect much. I arrived on a Thursday evening at about 10pm and was collected from the airport by one of their fans and driven to a pub called McHughes, which was full of Belfast ice hockey fans. Within half an hour of arrival, I had 7 pints of Guinness lined up, all bought for me! :eeek

    I don’t drink Guinness (I am a teetotal… honestly) but I kinda felt obliged! :drink:

    Great night :drunk12:drunk13

    Tbf, Giant's fans aren't the kind of people that turn up to try and ruin the day for everyone else.

    My uncle is half-Irish and lives in America. He tells everyone he's English over there because they're so cringe-worthy around the Irish.
