When Irish Eyes Are Smiling

  Okay.  So you all have heard me use the phrase, "When Irish eyes are smiling, sure they steal your heart away!" multiple times right?  Well my favorite male Irish singer, whose version of 'When Irish Eyes Are Smiling' introduced me to the song, just released the official music video for it from his upcoming album, Emmet Cahill's Ireland.  I'm super excited for this album, guys!  I love Irish music, and Emmet Cahill, formerly and currently of Celtic Thunder is my favorite.  Also, this album has some of my favorite songs on it.  'When Irish Eyes Are Smiling', 'Irish Lullaby', 'Wild Mountain Time', 'The Parting Glass' and others!  Emmet did a Facebook livestream last night that I watched, and sang a few of the songs for us.  It's going to be great!!  Here is the music video though, and I'll post the link to the album below, which is now available for pre-order.

  Also, when mom pulled up Facebook for me to watch it, she found this joke posted by Celtic Thunder.  It gave us all a good laugh!

 Irish Joke of the week:

   A Texan walks into a pub in Ireland and clears his voice to the crowd of drinkers. He says, "I hear you Irish are a bunch of hard drinkers. I'll give $500 American dollars to anybody in here who can drink 10 pints of Guinness back-to-back."

   The room is quiet and no one takes up the Texan's offer. One man even leaves. Thirty minutes later the same gentleman who left shows back up and taps the Texan on the shoulder. "Is your bet still good?", asks the Irishman.

   The Texan says yes and asks the bartender to line up 10 pints of Guinness. Immediately the Irishman tears into all 10 of the pint glasses drinking them all back-to-back. The other pub patrons cheer as the Texan sits in amazement.

   The Texan gives the Irishman the $500 and says, "If ya don't mind me askin', where did you go for that 30 minutes you were gone?"

   The Irishman replies, "Oh...I had to go to the pub down the street to see if I could do it first".
