Dad a member of the “Irish Mafia”

Dad often boasted, in hushed tones, that he was a member of the Irish Republican Army. While I’ll probably never be able to determine the truth of that statement, I did find proof that he was a member of the “Irish Mafia.”

Obviously, this is a tongue-in-cheek membership card attained at a good old Irish pub. Still, it was funny to find this old and tattered card that Dad had held onto all of these years.

And thanks to the wonders of the Internet, I was able to discover that Molly Malone’s is still in business! It’s fun to think that one of Dad’s old Los Angeles haunts is still alive and kicking. I think Dad would be happy to know that the Guinness is still pouring freely.
