Celebrating Irish success abroad.

The list of well to do people in the US with Irish names is amazing, how they weren’t this influential in their own country is baffling.

I can only conclude that something must have held them back.

Who can really help us, only our own kind who are so influential throughout the world.

If we begin to understand who the movers and shakers of this world are, we may be able to get the right help we need.

They say history repeats itself, so here’s the history in the US, you can surmise that the same influence has happened throughout the world for thousands of years and that the term Aryan is originally derived from the name Eiren meaning Ireland.

Here’s a list of well to do people with Irish surnames in the US.

Who can really help us, only our own kind who are so influential throughout the world.

Maybe now we can begin to understand why the British want control of Northern Ireland, with so many names throughout the world with Irish or Scottish origin that are influential, it’s not difficult to understand that the British seen this as a threat and wanted to stem the flow of Irish immigration towards the UK and not towards Northern Ireland and then eventually towards Scotland, Germany and beyond.

Today in Ireland we can see a political policy which does no favours for nurses, teachers etc in Ireland.

Instead trained Irish professionals are enticed toward countries controlled by the British crown.

Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc.

If Irish and Scottish professionals stayed at home, we throughly would be a nation to be reckoned with.

I guess the allure of sunshine and an endless supply of resources and space is too enticing.
