Happy St. Patrick’s Day! St. Patrick’s Day, when Irish Americans parade and party, and non-Irish use the day as an excuse to get drunk because, well, why not? Celebrating my mostly Irish heritage made me think of Quinn (because everything makes me think of Quinn) which inevitably lead to a very important question… is Quinn Irish?
Quinn is an Irish surname. It’s believed to be from the Gaelic ‘Ó’Cuinn’ (descendants of Conn) meaning ‘wisdom’ or ‘chief’. God that fits him perfectly. Wisdom indeed!
There are other signs that point to Quinn being of Irish descent. While we don’t actually know if Quinn was his real last name, he clearly had some sort of Catholic upbringing or influence. Quinn does the “sign of the cross” going into the church for Sandy Bachman’s funeral.
And of course, we’re all aware of his love for whiskey, specifically, Irish whiskey.
I like the idea of Quinn celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with some buddies in a bar. He’s drinking beers and having fun, cursing a ton, even more than he usually does and making his stories last much longer than they should — the true Irish way.
Whatever his heritage, Peter Quinn is the finest damn man on the planet. Please enjoy some pics of him wearing green — sláinte!
Also, those fingers!
HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!
