  • 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…

  • Coming Up For Air to Say Hello!!

    Hey Guys, Thank you for the emails asking for more content. I apologize for not writing lately. Let me correct that, I apologize for not writing for Irishman For Hire lately. I have been writing. Last year, I took a job that requires a lot of my time from September through June. Last summer, I…

  • 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…

  • Outlet

    Back in April, I opened my mailbox to find a large padded envelope. I went inside my house, opened the package and found an advanced copy of PJ Pacifico’s album Outlet. I popped the Compact Disc into my car stereo and discovered PJ continues to pleasantly amaze me with his music. Outlet is PJ Pacifico’s…

  • 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…

  • 2011 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 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…

  • On Hiatus!

    Just briefly! Irishman For Hire is taking a week off. I had a fantastic (albeit crazy) extended weekend in Boston last week and this week, I am celebrating my fourteenth wedding anniversary with my beautiful bride, Mrs. Irishman! Happy Anniversary, Steph! I love you! I also want to wish a Happy Belated Birthday to my…
