    His mother and father both emigrated from Ireland. Mother from Tipperary and father from Galway. He’s got a similar background to myself.

    Take a look at his picture here.

    Another in denial. He obviously looks part black, in fact he looks related to Robert Ri’chard. This guy is not 100% white.
