Irish History

The ever-excellent Onion ( Neverland Ranch Investigators Discover Corpse Of Real Michael Jackson) takes an irreverent look at St Patrick’s Day and Irish-America in Irish-Heritage Timeline.

Starting with “7500 BC- The first humans arrive in Ireland. Prior to this, only the Irish lived there” and ending with “2002 – Irish-American author Frank McCourt publishes his third memoir, Abusive Cousins I Forgot To Mention “, a procession of sacred cows are slaughtered.
Will everybody get the joke ?
