We are not Irish, We are British!

I hate to inform my beloved realitives of this sad fact but we are not Irish, we are British. If any of you took the time to time to read Catherine Mulligan citizenship papers you would have seen that our beloved Matriarch listed herself as a citizen of the British empire. I hereby request that the Irish flag be removed and be replaced with the Union Jack.

hmm... to the "elders" with this one.

N. Ireland was ruled by England but that does not make us "British"

yes your grandmother was from Nothern Ireland which was under British control at the time. If you knew your history or were half as intellegent as you pretend you would know the gravity of the insult you have perpetrated not only to your family but to the brave souls that have given thier lives to set Ireland free from the tyranny of British Rule.

Hey JP, lighten up, everything I say on this blog is in fun and design to encourage discourse among the family. Honestly, I was surprised when I saw grandma listed her citizenship as British. I then thought I would have some fun with it and put it to the blog. I try not to cross the line and insult people and if I do I am more than willing to apologize if asked to. You, my friend have crossed a line. You are a mean spirited person by nature. Now I am going to be mean.

On second thought, I'm not going to be mean. I wish someday you can find the happiness you are so missing. Word of advice happiness doesn't begin and end with the greenback.

Cheerio Mate, or whatever you say.



PS--Leathdhuine=Moron

PS--If you are so concerned about our shared family history and how mistreated we were under England's rule, why the heck did you live,eat,take their money, socialize, and inculcate their culture into yours JP?

I get it, you sold yourself for a few pounds.

So john Mulligan, you make cards? Do you sell them? Is it a hobby? i saw one of your cards with baby Matthew on it at UJ. very impressive.

Red said...

Yes Joyce he does. I have told him many times he should open up a cardshop...

John Mulligan said...

joyce said...

Scott, my mom says it's nice to see you guys really took an interest in her posters. it made her efforts well worth it especially since she wasn't feeling all that well when she put them together.
