Before we move on I'd like to share a little more about the man my son hopes to become one day. Shaemus comes from a long line of Celtic Warriors and he's here to set straight some of the misconceptions that many of us have about Irish tradition. As many of you have probably already realized, the Irish have suffered greatly due to the misconceptions about their culture. Many are under the impression that Ireland is all about politics and war and drinking, but really it's about respect and honor. Which explains Shaemus choice of work and attire. Shaemus is also deeply religious. He eats a cross a day. Sort of a spiritual vitamin if you would.
God help me. I think I might need to eat a cross to get through this one.
