Sean Albro Tuohy is the man I sleep with every night. Well most nights. Oh, get your mind out of the gutter. He's my one and only. His younger brother is Seamus Timothy Tuohy. There was a baby brother who died shortly after birth; his name was Patrick Padare Tuohy. Not withstanding, that being said, obviously this family has serious Irish roots. My husband could have actually played basketball on the Irish National Olympic basketball team. I informed him that was a box we were NOT going to check when we got married.
