I thought 'It's a book. So, I suppose I should put this under 'books'.' Although I hesitated for a moment: I was also thinking of posting it in Paul Doherty's Mailbox, but I couldn't find that.  :)

And he also said it a few times... If I am not mistaken, Ringo is the only one who isn't of an Irish decent

McCartney (a variant of Macartney or MacCartney) is a surname that originated in Ireland

That's from Wikipedia though...  Then again it goes on to say that the original McCartney's split off between Ireland and Scotland

You're welcome. I'm pretty sure someone posted a YouTube-link to an interview with the Beatles in Ireland a while ago.
