    It really seems like I'm the only Irish person on this site.
    Anyway, post your basses if you're here :D

    I'll be going on a horseback-riding tour in Cork this summer! *But besides playing now in a Celtic-punk band now and having a grandfather immigrate from Sligo I reside in NW Corner of the US.

    I am part Irish. My grandmother came to the US from Cork. I am also English, Canadian and Portuguese.

    My Grandfather(from Leitrim) and Grandmother(from Portumna) came from Ireland. I still have cousins and have visited the old family farm/now golf course. We stayed in Cork as well and really liked it. We ate at Greens restaurant at the end of that ally with the waterfall. The wife, parents and I are all planning a trip next year for the holidays.

    I suppose i'm 1/4 Irish, if that counts. My late grandfather was Irish, before coming to Canada. My remaining 3/4 is Acadian French.

    hey Mossiebass, I was just over in Ireland in October - my father's father's side is from Waterford and Cork. I got to Dublin and Waterford, not Cork (a short trip). I plan to get to Cork in April or so - or at least that's my hope. :bassist:

    oh, and my basses:

    100% Irish and still living here, just north of the border in Co.Down. Up Down!!!! (Not that I care for football, I just like to confuse our American friends here). Don't post here much anymore, more often on Basschat.co.uk.

    My grandfather was from Ireland and the rest of my family history is obvious. My name: Walt Finnerty (no Joke) LOL!!!!! Pictured with my two Brubaker Brutes. MJXSC5 and MJX5. Awesome affordable basses IMO.

    well, I'd always heard about the "black Irish" :bassist:

    my band includes a Murphy and a Cavanagh, so we're majority Irish background at least:

    LOL!!! Yeah I'm legitimate. Not a gov't name as they say here. I like to drink, party and tell tall tales as well as play a mean and funky bass.

    Yeah really. Asking an American message board for Irish people is like asking for tacos in Mexico.

    hey jlepre - I use that little amp all the time. I've been playing with/thru the PA a lot and the Genz has a great DI out, meanwhile it's the monitor as well. I use "big" amps too some of the time, but I'd guess that 3.0 has gotten more work than any other single amp since I got it. :bassist:

    you still rockin' that Bongo?

    What gives you that impression?

    I was born, bred and buttered here and, apart from a stint living in England, have lived in either Sligo or Dublin :)
