The actor Kevin O’Brien, star of stage, screen, and now, audiobooks, is a fine and worthy member of my clan. I am sure that his <downloadable mp3s of works by Chesterton and Pope Benedict XVI will be an ornament to your iPod or other music player.
However, I mean “clan” in the very most extended “all O’Briens are descended from Brian Boroimhe from back about AD 980” kind of way. He is not related to me in any closer fashion of which I’m aware, nor do I know him personally.
I do have a younger brother named Kevin. But trust me, he looks totally different. Also, not an actor.
(I’m not related in any non-clan fashion to Michael O’Brien, either. Although I have annoyed him with my commentary on positive Christian draconic imagery from medieval Catholic tradition, which proves I must be family!)
