Matt Furey Uncensored: How an Irishman Thinks--I think of a true Irishman as someone who is an expert at telling a story, either in writing or orally. An Irishman who cannot tell a story will go broke. A true Irishman is a fighter, or a politician, a priest, a policeman, or an actor/comedian, or some sort of performer.An Irishman will be opinionated beyond belief. He will have a comment about almost everything - as well as a theory, principle or LAW. And an Irishman, most of all, will have a sense of humor, even during times of extreme adversity.
