Celebrities that you admire
« on: December 31, 2018, 07:41:16 PM »
It's been said many a time here and elsewhere that the Irish are a crowd of begrudgers. Don't believe that myself so I'm hoping people can list a few celebrity type people they admire and why?

Conor McGregor- he might not be everyone's cup of tea and sometimes he makes me cringe but I do admire how he got himself where he is from bring a mediocre boxer to one if the best known faces in sport.

Angelina Jolie- Fine actress but also someone who does massive work for charities and important causes and in my opinion doesn't seek to make it about her. I don't know why she gets such bad press sometimes. I've always found her to be very articulate and caring when I've heard her speak.

3 posts in and already it's a cnutfest  ;D

I'm not sure I 'admire' anyone but I quite like wee MickeyD and the way he represents us, of course having a Rory Gallagher photo in his office the day I was there hekped.

Can I add something - who's the nicest celebrity you met? Paul McGrath, absolute gent. Met him on a back Street near OT one night. He stopped and engaged in conversation for ages we had to make our excuses eventually as we were late for our lift.
