Hello from Ireland

Postby richardanthonyc » Thu May 26, 2011 12:43 pm

Hi everybody, I am a 23 year old AFOL who has grown up collecting castle lego all my life :) Delighted to finally be on a Lego castle forum where so many MOC creators are like myself. Hopefully in a few weeks I will post a few of my own creations. Anyone else Irish here? :p

Cheers! Well to tell the truth I was born in England to Irish dad and English mum and now I live in Ireland so I am a half breed :wink:

Hey Richardanthonyc,

Welcome to CC. There are so many cool castles scattered about your fair isle, I hope we get to see some MOCs inspired by your locale.

BTW, you missed our March monthly build challenge. In honor of St. Patrick's day, it was "think green".

Hello and Welcome.

While I am not Irish I was smart enough to marry a wonderful Irish Lass. :D

Her mom was from County Kerry and her Father was from County Monaghan. They married and came here to California where we (my wife and I ) met. :D

Hi and welcome to CC. My great-great-great-great-great-grandmother was Irish; tis a beautiful country. So I think that makes me 1/64 Irish. :eyebrows:

Hey, I think I once met an Irish guy, somewhere or other, and I, if it counts, am 1/4 Irish, although you could mistake me for pure Irish. Being called a Leprechaun is irritating, and welcome to CC!
If I were to make something out of LEGOs, I would probably use LEGOs. Pretty advanced stuff going on up in my head.
