I am so proud to be Irish. As a nation I believe what distinguishes us most is not the greenness of our isle but the greatness of our people:
- athletes like Sonia O’Sullivan,
- poets like Seamus Heaney,
- boxers like Katie Taylor,
- musicians like U2,
- thought leaders like Mary Robinson,
- rugby players like Brian O’Driscoll,
- actors like Saoirse Ronan.
I wonder how the next generation will make us proud?
