4) You think you sing very well.
5) You have no idea how to make a long story short!

14) Many of your sisters and/or cousins are named Mary , Catherine or Eileen ... and there is at least one member of your family with the full

16) You may not know the words, but that doesn't stop you from singing.

23) You have Irish Alzheimer's... your forget everything but the grudges!
24) "Irish Stew" is a euphemism for "boiled leftovers."
25) All of your losses are alcohol-related (loss of virginity, loss of driver's license, loss of money, loss of job, loss of significant other,
loss of teeth from punch...) but it never stops you from drinking.
26) Your skin's ability to tan.... not so much.
27) At this very moment, you have at least two relatives who are not speaking to each other (not fighting, mind you, just not speaking to
each other).
28 Childhood remedies for the common cold often included whiskey.
