Today is the talented, gracious, lovely Maureen O’Hara’s 94th birthday. Her fabulous memoir, ‘Tis Herself, was published in 2004. (See–this is sort of book-related.) It is a must-read for any fans of Classic Hollywood.
“Being an Irishwoman means many things to me. An Irishwoman is strong and feisty. She has guts and stands up for what she believes in. She believes she is the best at whatever she does and proceeds through life with that knowledge. She can face any hazard that life throws her way and stay with it until she wins. She is loyal to her kinsmen and accepting of others. She’s not above a sock in the jaw if you have it coming. She is only on her knees before God. Yes, I am most definitely an Irishwoman.”-Maureen O’Hara, ‘Tis Herself
