Wear that crown with pride.

It takes a very special character to claim the title of 'Irish king of the redheads' but it seems that Kerryman Alan Reidy Blennerville is a very special person.

We have a unique affinity for gingers in this country as seen by the universal love for Ed Sheeran, Paul O'Connell and a recent convention that took place in Cork but we finally have a crown to bestow upon a redhead.

While we're unsure of Alan's new duties, we imagine he has to show up to the opening of lots of new barbers and preach the gospel of why being a ginger is cool, it's hard to argue with his title of most glorious Irish redhead.
