"We'll be at the New York St Patrick's Day parade, which is one of the biggest in the world," says Enda (48), an assistant director of operational risk management at AIG. "It'll be very different to celebrating back home as 90pc of the people celebrating aren't Irish, but a lot of them are of Irish descent." Enda's "nomadic ways" started when he left Ireland to find work after studying accounting in Rathmines College of Commerce. During his time in Buenos Aires he started an expat travel blog, There are some things he particularly longs for on March 17 when celebrating all things Irish. "I miss a good pint of Guinness - they just don't know how to pour it over here - a packet of Tayto and a good bag of chips with loads of salt and vinegar." But being an official Irishman gives him carte blanche to ham it up abroad. "Yes, I tend to be over-the-top Irish at times," he laughs. "I belted out a good rendition of Irish Rover at a karaoke session a few weeks ago.". Tags: ..#famous.. If you like what you've read, why not subscribe to updates click here
