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

I listen to a lot of Irish music, or Irish influenced music.  I was wondering if there was anyone out there who could offer me any direction to stuff outside the norm.  My range is all over the…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

I am Irish and Polish.   My wife and I have always wanted to go to Ireland but the cost of a trip is so much.

Maybe some day.

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.

How can I improve my leadership abilities?

Good evening gentlemenRecently I have been promoted to a Corporal in the US Marine Corps reserve. I was happy being promoted especially cause it was a meritorious promotion and around my two year mark. I only had one problem about this, I feel I lack leading abilities. While I am very good at my job and have good conduct I never really had any leadership experience. I have no idea how to be with my junior Marines how to gain their respect as a leader and their trust. Especially since some were…See More

Out to Build Bridges

This is a GSRM (Gender Sexual Romantic Minorities or LGBTQ+) group.  But And straight men and cis-men are encouraged to join as well.However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled.  The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities.  This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered.  And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.Debate…See More
