There are a number of different reasons given. One man said: “We’re well known all over the world for our generosity.”
A young woman said: “We reach to all corners of the world and bring joy to it.”

    I totally agree with everyone in the video, and am extremely proud of my Irish American Heritage. The month I spent in the Leitrim/Fermanagh area was the highlight of my life. But with such wonderful, kind, welcoming, beautiful people I don’t understand why there is still trouble in Belfast. Who or what is poisoning the minds of the young people? I’m comparing it to the troubles we are now having in South Carolina with the young man who killed the 9 people in the Black church and the Confederate flag. History is just that, history. What happened happened and reliving it is not going to change it. It is so sad that a few people or one person can reflect on so many and cause so much hatred.
