I’m 3rd (4th if you count it as both Gran and her parents coming together I guess? Me, I count it from Gran.) generation off the boat Irish and in some ways I’m more fucking Irish than any Irish person I’ve ever met from over there and I’ve had people from over there tell me that too. That I’d fit right in. My Gran came as a kid, at like 6, so she still had a bit of an accent from being born there and her folks of course did. She babysat me as a baby so I picked it up quite unconsciously from her when I learned to talk apparently. Mostly I don’t have any accent at all but now and again something comes out and it’s totally Irish right down to intonation and I’m not in any way faking that.
I’ve always thought that if I went I might not come back actually were it possible. I like the music, the literature, the food, the whole culture. The climate totally works for me. About the only thing I don’t like is the drink. I can skip the booze, but other than that I might as well be born there from what I can tell. I’m really most comfortable being around the Irish and other UK people I know. A lot of Americans I just don’t really like them all that much.
I’m about the only one in my family that really values that heritage though. Probably why the 150 year old brass candlesticks that my Gran’s mum brought with her from Ireland are sitting on MY table as I type but I honestly feel I am as Irish as you can be given I wasn’t actually born there myself. :P

once you put your face in between them cheeks its like going to another dimension; its like when that astronaut went to Jupiter in 2001 a space oddessey and lived his whole life and died and reached out for the monolith
