Hi

Irishness has always been a tricky one for me, because I am what the Irish would call a blow-in. Growing up in Ireland, I don't know if I felt English but I definitely felt different to everyone else.

--- I understand that "tricky" means "difficult" and "blow-in" - I'm not sure?

Thanks

Hi,

--- I understand that "tricky" means "difficult" Yes, but with more focus on 'requiring skill and adroitness'.

and "blow-in" - I'm Irish, but I haven't heard this expression.

or at least some other Irishmen do not consider him to be a real Irishman Emotion: smile
