Background McGuigan was born in Clones, Ireland (Republic of Ireland), son of singer Pat McGuigan (died 1987). He represented Northern Ireland in the Commonwealth Games at Edmonton 1978 (1978 Commonwealth Games) and represented Ireland (Republic of Ireland) at the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow. Pat McGuigan sang "Danny Boy" before several of his son's fights. This fact inspired the Hacienda Brothers' song "If Daddy Don't Sing Danny Boy", written by boxer and musician Chris Gaffney. NPR interview with Chris Gaffney Political views Partridge is politically conservative (Conservatism), and his favourite newspaper is the ''Daily Mail'', a right-leaning publication which he claims is "arguably the best newspaper in the world" in the episode ''Bravealan''. He is very pro-law and has a strong stance on criminality, viewing hoodlums and miscreants as "sub-human scum". He also favours the death penalty for treason and murder. Despite these professed views, he appears to have no strong moral compunctions; in one episode he exploits an "all you can fit on a plate" breakfast deal at the Travel Tavern by bringing in a slightly larger plate of his own, a "scam" of which the staff are in fact fully aware but tolerate with amusement. Alan is not a fan of the modern obsession with health and safety, stating on one occasion that he had in fact "gone mad" after being told that naked flames are not permitted on the forecourt of his local petrol station, thus curtailing his plans for a barbecue there. He has commented on the troubles in Northern Ireland stating that he believes both Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness to be very clever men, though that he does not trust either of them as he believes Adams looks like a deputy headmaster and McGuinness looks like a clown without make-up. He displays ignorance over the issues that unfolded in Ireland, once chastising the Irish over the potato famine with the remark, "at the end of the day, they will pay the price for being a fussy eater", and also completely misunderstanding the lyrics to Sunday Bloody Sunday by U2, believing the song to "really encasuplated the frustra tions of a Sunday" (both of these conversations happened in front of two Irish television producers in ''To Kill A Mocking Alan''). He has admiration for former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and believes she was betrayed by her own party when she was forced out of Downing Street. Alan once caused a security alert at Choristers Country Club by booking a room under the name "The Real IRA". C18 has long been associated with loyalists (Ulster loyalism) in Northern Ireland.
