Good Morning, Irishman For Hire has undergone some changes recently. I expect, quite possibly, in the future, there will be more. For all of you who faithfully followed IFH in the beginning and throughout the years, I want to let you know what I have been working on for the past few years. I released […]
I know it’s been six years since I have written regularly. I have been working on so many other projects that I have not had the time to work on this forum. When I do get back to this space in the (hopefully, near) future, there will be one major change to Irishman for Hire: […]
The Internet Still Amazes Me (Six Years Later)!
I wrote a post back in December of 2010 about how a friend of mine and I were able to compose a song while on two different continents. The article, The Internet Still Amazes Me, was a simple telling of how those efforts came together. Now, here we are six years later and we finally […]
2012 Blarney Stone Award
In 2008, I decided that, at the end of the awards season (The Golden Globes, The Oscars, The Grammy’s, etc.), I was going to give out a single award here at Irishman For Hire called the Blarney Stone Award. The Blarney Stone is a block of bluestone atop the Blarney Castle in Ireland and it […]
The Final Word, Twelve Years Later
I want to thank so many of you who have written to me or posted comments about my adoption search. It was a massive undertaking but also a journey that taught me so much about myself as a person and the world around me. I started out looking for medical information. What I found was […]
The Letter, Twelve Years Later
It was an amazing Thursday night. The grass had been freshly cut and the aroma wafted throughout the infield. A cool breeze was blowing in from left field and as the game went into the latter innings, we were locked in an early season battle that eventually went our way. It was the perfect way […]
The Post-It Note, Twelve Years Later!
I woke up early the next morning. I was exhausted. It had been a long weekend and the drive back from Connecticut was slower than usual due to the traffic. But most of all, I think I was just worn out from three and a half years of searching. Realizing that I had spent all […]
The Libraries, Twelve Years Later!
“Libraries!” I randomly shouted while sitting on the couch watching television. “What?” Stephanie asked as I jumped up, raced into the guest room and grabbed the Oak Tag that I had stuffed into the closet. “Libraries!” I said as I came back into the living room and put the Oak Tag on the coffee table. […]
The Clues, Twelve (and a half) Years Later!
After my dealings with Lenox Hill Hospital and one unscrupulous character, the world around me had grown infinitely bigger. My quest to sort out the earliest details of my own life had become tirelessly futile. The world was poised to stop me from accessing the information I had yearned to uncover. Face it; adoption is […]
The Internet Still Amazes Me!
Last March, Stephanie and I decided to take the day off to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Our children were allowed to stay home from school and as a family; we headed into Boston to celebrate. While we were having lunch in Faneuil Hall, a band from Ireland took the stage. The Arbour Men played traditional […]
