To be proud is to give and here I give
This video was recorded for the centenary of the 1916 rising.
Since starting back this season as a tour guide a question constantly asked is “why are you so proud”. In some respects this video goes some way in explaining my total dedication and love for this small island. So to all my travelling friends as promised here’s my answer.
It’s a conviction we share throughout the four provinces, it binds us as friends without question. It’s unwritten yet there and forever in our minds and thoughts. When asked what makes me Proud I pause, I smile and I simply reply “I’m Irish”.
It’s our shared history, culture and heritage not forgetting friendship community respect and honour. We are a socialist republic, no longer am I alone, I am one of many and it is my duty as a citizen to care not just for my immediate family but for my neighbours and our nation as a whole.
To be proud is to give and here I give, here I live, here I am Ireland.
