So what has Northern Ireland done to be proud off.....
Heather

Northwest 200, Road racing, and the Dunlop brothers

Jase forgive me how could have forgotten such events!! Have you ever been over to Portrush to watch the racing??

About 10 years ago, but intending on doing it again next year.
I should have enough money to quit my job and go rideabout for a couple of years - so the northwest is a good place to star - then TT

Of course. Don't you? And the pavements are covered in pistachios.

Yum, yum, must go up there more often, the only thing i get to see on the pavements in Aberdeen is the odd drunk throwing up

Ok, so there's about 4 different countries represented here, I'm gonna add another one.
I'm proud of Denmark because we until the mohammad drawings had a spotless reputation around the world, but also because we stood up for ourselves during the crisis (though i don't necessarily support what happened) I'm proud because we can say that we have one of the world's best welfare systems though there's only 5.5 million people in the country, that we are a very proud people and that we invented Carlsberg

I'm proud of Denmark too for inventing Carlsberg. ;)

I love being Irish! I was always proud of where I came from, but when I travel I feel even more so.
When I come in contact with my fellow countrymen and women abroad, I get warm fuzzies all over.

No really, what I value the most about Irish people is how decent they are to each other and to other people. It´s good to be an Irish person travelling. Other nationalities seem to be very fond of us, and that´s a great thing to feel when you are so far away from home.

No Evelyn, they just see an attractive, young, single girl and want to have sex with you .
