In Honor of St. Paddy's Day, Here Are The Top Ten Irish Actors We'd Invite to Share a Celebratory Libation...or Two

By Cindy Davis | Seriously Random Lists | March 17, 2014 | Comments ()


I’m not trying to promote spending a day in the pub (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but let’s just say we did have the day off…and let’s just say we could spend Saint Patricks’ Day drinking all the beer we could handle—who would we like to invite along? I might be biased (but at least I’m honest)…I’d bring mostly men. You can’t blame me, can you? Go ahead, blame me. I’m drunk in the pub with all these fantastic people, what the hell do I care?
