14 things Irish Grandads really love — 7 Comments

  1. She seems a bit out of touch, that author. Did a bit of digging after reading your original response and turns out the average age for becoming a grandparent is around/under 50. In fact the range goes from 30 years old upwards.

    Maybe she needs to get out more 🙂

    • 50 sounds about right.  Come to think of it, I was 51.  I suppose we both fell into the trap of equating grandfatherhood with being retired. 

      Fuck it!  My list still stands.

  2. With so many unexpected teen pregnancies nowadays it is not unusual for parents to become grandparents by 30, and great grandparents by 50, if such tendencies run in the family.
