New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is, not surprisingly given his surname, Irish through and through. Back in 2009, when the Pats played Tampa in London, Brady spoke fondly of his Irishness.

“My father is 100 percent Irish. We took a trip over there together and visited some of the places where my family came from. That was a great experience for me and obviously I am very proud of my Irish roots. I’ve been golfing in Ireland and Scotland as well. I’ve really enjoyed my time over there.”

The Brady roots, according to Tom’s dad, are in Cavan and Cork, and the ancestors came to America to escape the ravages of the famine.
