I was making a joke based on the names. I was replying to a Mike. I know the history of the area well. I graduated high school with Kelly's father. My best friend growing up was a Finnerty. He had 4 brothers and 2 sisters. Is that enough to qualify his parents a 'good' Irish Catholics or were they a few short? Probably all they could afford on a fireman's salary.

The steel mills made Youngstown one of those 'melting pot' areas in more ways than one.

Cheers fra. Before I went to school I told everyone I am irish. Reading irish history and drinking Guinness made it absolute.

I have 6 sons. Paddy, Mike, Seamus, Regan and Kieran. The other one got named after Floyd Patterson.

Hello lads, I was browsing through ticket master, and I noticed they are advertising tickets for a proposed Andy Lee contest in Limerick on April 26th.I dont know if this promotion will materialise, after his defeat on Friday, but as I said their advertising it anyway.

Sorry, no offense intended sir. I wondered if Pavlik could be part Irish too with his first name being Kelly? Do you think the Pavliks will stay in Youngstown now that KP is a very wealthy man at this point? Boom Boom Mancini - I believe lives in southern California and is currently involved in the movie industry.
