St Brendon made it to America a couple of hundred years before the Vikings, and made it back to a Ireland to tell the tale…Honestly it was the Vikings who discovered America. 1021 AD. They have songs too.
Sorry about Woodrow Wilson. He wasnt our best, but he did he needed to stay loyal to the Brits at the time, following the Great War we allied with them on JUST prior to your unfortunately timed announcement of independence. And I am aware you were neutral-ish in WWII the big one, going so far as to sell the notion that bombs dropped on Ireland from German planes in the early 1940s were either entirely accidental or not German at all. This contrasted with our view that the Nazis were bad. I like to think American power entering that war at that time kept the Germans from continuing on with the bombings and worse, as at that moment the Brits weren’t ready to do more than play defense for their own account. And there was also the Good Friday/Belfast agreement, we were and are there for that. But yes I was just trying to defuse the situation with humor, so much for that.
