In honor of Ireland’s most famous snake-charming Saint and his world-famous green beer-chugging holiday, we’re taking this opportunity to highlight some of the celebrity parents that hail form that scrappy green island.
Check out a photo-tour through a few of Ireland’s most famous exports and their families below.
Pierce Brosnan – You probably though he was English for some reason (I did), but he ain’t. Pierce Brosnan was born and raised in Navan, County Meath, Ireland. Maybe it’s his tenure as 007 that threw me off. Anyhoo, Brosan and wife Keely Smith have two sons Dylan, 13 and Paris, 9. Pierce also has 3 children from his previous marriage with the late Cassandra Harris: Charlotte, 37, Christopher, 36 (both adopted) and Sean, 25.
Colin Farrell – Colin has cleaned up his act and settled into fatherhood rather nicely in the last few years. He has two boys: James, 6, and Henry, 5-months.
Sinead O’Connor – OK, it’s true. There aren’t a lot of prominent Irish women in the entertainment industry these days — and even fewer are the ones with young children. I’m not sure why. Sinead may not have had a lot going on career-wise since ripping up that photo of Pope John Paul, but maybe that’s because she’s been busy with her 4 kids: Jake, Brigidine, Shane, and Yeshua.
