Happy 94th Birthday Maureen FitzSimons! 

Born August 17, 1920

"Above all else, deep in my soul, I’m a tough Irishwoman. 

 Being an Irishwoman means many things to me. An Irishwoman is strong and feisty. She has guys 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. 

 My heritage has been grounding, and it has brought me peace. Being tough and strong have always been my most dominant characteristics, like a fire that burns deep within me. I have always believed that I can do anything I set my mind to, as long as I’m willing to make the necessary sacrifices. I have called upon this fire to achieve my goals and survive whenever I felt my world come crashing down around me. In this way, I am like many of the women I’ve played on-screen.” 

 - Maureen O’Hara
