“Other people have a nationality. The Irish have a psychosis.”
This Sunday I will share my passion for Irish history and what I have learned about my own story as I have stumbled into the history of my family’s country. The story of the Emerald Isle goes way beyond shamrocks, mythical saints, and drinking ballads (although all these stereotypes are essential), and embraces the narrative of independence and struggle. I invite you to share in the story of the 40 million people in the United States that claim Irish heritage!
From Denver, Colorado, Sean is a Junior at Saint Louis University studying History, Politics, and International Studies. He loves rugby, reading books, and walking around outside thinking about things.

I have tried my hand at an original cover of The Auld Triangle…quite far removed from Luke Kelly’s rendition but I think that is what cover songs are all about…check it out if you have a few minutes to spare… https://juniorchills.wordpress.com/2016/05/26/junior-chills-the-auld-triangle-cover/
