The sacred month approaches. I know I will be at the Dutchess County St. Patrick's day parade this Saturday. Alas, St. Pat's day falls on a Monday, so I won't be able to go into NYC to catch that…Continue

Title says it all. Irish history is so far outside my comfort zone, I don't know experts from kooks. A nudge in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.  Anybody know a decent title about…Continue

Well it wasn't as easy as that, my job prevented me from have a lot of time to access the internet. I've recently switched career paths at work and now have more time for leisure activities.

I'm a Leesider living in Arkansas because of my wife. It's been hard living in a place as foreign as the moon. I find that I've no clue what half the people are talking about and at times I just give up on ever trying to understand. Being in America I find it hard to find out about anything going on back home, because the news here acts like other places don't exist and if they do then they're just another state. I'm hoping this is a place where I can talk to me back home and find out how the Real Capital is.

I'm not Irish myself but I'm a big fan of Ireland's culture and history!

Lads, just to follow on from that barber discussion, you've got to go to the Waldorf Barbershop on Westmoreland Street, its the oldest barbershop in Dublin. It's like stepping back in time in there;

Ask for Liam or Linda.

I remember the missus mentioning that one. Excellent. Thanks Nick, the mane's due a trim and the hot towel shave is a bonus. I hear words of a brandy and cigar also. Sounds like a fun afternoon with the boys is all set. Will let you know how I get on. Cheers once again.

I went to Grafton Barbers in Dublin a few weeks ago. Best haircut I ever got. They do the shave and the whole works if you want it. It's very manly. You can even have a beer while waiting for your turn. http://www.graftonbarbers.com/

I'm new to the Art of Manliness community so hello to all. Glad to see a page for fellow Irishmen and our diaspora.

Can anyone help me find a decent manly barber where I can get a decent haircut and a close shave! Anywhere in either the Sligo or Maynooth area. Dublin is also acceptable. Want to experience the manly feel of an open razor to my neck.

From what I've read about dual citizenship it of course depends on the home country's laws. Here in America we are now forced to choose either American citizenship or foreign. My father had dual American/Japanese citizenship for years (army brat) but had to officially choose sometime in the early '90s. Ireland may recognize it but America (as a rule) does not. This is what I've been able to find with out doing actual legal research.

The issue of height

I am a rather average man of height standing at a regular height of 5'10. I would like to be taller because I feel it would increase my confidence and level out the playing field that is dating. Does anyone mind sharing their height and discussing how it has affected their life? Please share. Thank you.See More

What to wear to a vineyard

I'm going to a wine tasting and vineyard tour event. There's also a bit of networking opportunities to be had. Any ideas of what to wear? My natural instinct always leads me to a waistcoat. Maybe a suit. Maybe a tweed jacket. But if I'm touring a vineyard, there's a possibility it could be muddy. Then there's the wine tasting and networking with possible future employees, I still need to be on top form with my clothes. Any ideas?See More
