Martin O'Malley Takes the Stage

Ireland is a running theme throughout Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley's life, and is particularly evident onstage. "This harp has 32 strings, one for every county in Ireland," he told the audience at the Avalon Theatre on May 10, introducing a tribute to Irish immigrants. Amid the applause afterward, he said, "That song was written with my great-grandfather in mind. He came here some three generations ago. I keep a little sign on my desk that says 'No Irish Need Apply,' to remind us of the creative tension and energy in the world here."

See the performance in the video above, and read the whole story on why Martin O'Malley is worthy of attention going into 2016.
