Iranians are too dark or stereotypically Middle Eastern looking.

Try Assyrian. Check out Andre Agassi.

He is a great example of “Black-Irish” (if you don’t know what it is please research).
He can easily pass as a Spaniard, Portuguese, or Galician.

still doesn’t change the fact that he is irish.

It is amazing that there is so much said about an non existent ethnicity e.g. “Black Irish”. If Colin had a child with blond hair would they also be called Black Irish?

You just have to love old english propaganda.

He’s handsome, but I hear he has a bad temper and is an alcoholic. I couldn’t put up with a man like that, no matter how hot he was.

he looked very typically fair-skinned Celtic when he was a teen:×501.jpg

these people either get darker when they’re older or they just want to tan themselves.

if this is the birth record of his father

who has a sister named Maureen

“O’Callaghan” is Colin’s paternal grandmother’s surname

Colin’s uncle Tommy was born on 07.11.1937 in Dublin, long before his siblings.

I can’t find his birth record

He’s too handsome to be just white. He looks Mexican.

You’re too ugly to be just black…
