Hello Gentlemen,

I'm a long time reader of the site and have read the excellent Art of Manliness book also. I'll greatly look forward to talking to you all in time.

To give a bit of background information, I'm a young Irishman and I'm very interested in rugby (which I feel has an amazing fraternal community) as well as travelling and seeing new places.

Best wishes to you all from Ireland.

Kind Regards

Irishman

**PS - I know that it may be considered 'unmanly' by some to hide behind an internet moniker. However I believe using a moniker will allow me more freedom to discuss certain topics.

Howdy Irishman and welcome to AoM. No biggie about your moniker; I wish I had bothered to think up somethin edgy when I registered.
Never followed rugby but grew up in one of the most rabid dens of its offspring (American football)- Oklahoma (check out the AoM OU Sooners fans group sometime to see what I mean). There are a lot of sports fans on here so you'll probably run into some fellow rugby aficionados.
Look forward to seeing your posts in the future

Hi Doug,

Thanks for the introduction.

"When I think of integrity, I think of it as maintaining who I am: my morals, my character, my needs, my reputation. Integrity is damaged or lost when I let thinks, situations, or people take me too far from my center in any of those areas."
