From lovable rogues to Celtic mythology - Bryan Fitzgerald brings you some Irish costumes to spice up Halloween
1. Darby O’Gill - Nothing screams “Hello I'm Irish” more than this costume of the legendary film figure. Pot of gold and leprechauns not included.
2. President John F Kennedy - You will have nothing to fear, particularly embarrassment of having a lame costume, if done up like this popular statesman. This outfit goes best with a Marilyn Monroe costume.
3. Colin Farrell - You too can be every-body's favorite Hollywood bad boy turned responsible clean-cut father figure. The only draw back to this idea is that you’ll be explaining your costume all night.
4. Maureen O’Hara - A special costume for the ladies is this red-haired stunner from “The Quiet Man”. You’ll be certain to make the men go quiet and lose their breath when entering the room as this starlet.
5. Bono - This season you too can look ‘even better than the real thing’, or Bono, front-man of legendary Irish rockband U2. On a sidenote: Fly glasses are not recommended if trick or treating at night.
6. Banshee - Not to be confused with the sideband of Suzie, banshees in folklore are fairies or spirits who wail when someone is about to die. Or in your case if you didn’t get enough candy.
7. Brian Kelly - For the sporting folk, you can be this Notre Dame Fighting Irish coach. Unlike the football team you surely will be a winner in this costume.
8. Irish Immigrant - Pay homage to your great grandmothers and grandfathers who made the fateful journey from the mother-country. Luckily tweed flat-caps are back in fashion.
9. Shane McGowan - Ireland’s most notorious snaggle toothed, hammered, punk rocker will be the talk of the town. I do recommend keeping your bottle of vodka in a paper bag due to strict open container laws.
10. Damian McGinty - Dress up this year as the famed singer from Celtic Thunder and winner of the Glee project. You sure will be full of glee with all the compliments you receive from the ladies.
