I am of Irish descent. My grandparents moved to America from Ireland in the late 1890's. I am married to a woman of Irish descent as well. Both our families were from southern Ireland. County Cork area. We visited Ireland in 2000 and can't wait to go back. My favorite place in the world. I do American Civil War living history and portray Thomas Francis Meagher of the Fighting 69th Irish Brigade. I am also an Elvis Tribute Artist and have performed all over the eastern US.
