The principle race of Éireann (Ireland).

Also refers to their language, Irish (Gaelic).

They still bear a strong grudge towards the English for the centuries of prejudice and grief heaped on them.

Stereotyped as heavy drinkers, potato bingers, and red-headed.

Not all of them drink, and if they do, not to the extreme that's shown in sterotypes; stereotypes cover only a minority of a people. And they do not eat potoatoes all day, everyday.

And only 10% of Ireland's people are natural redheads; the vast majority are
dark-haired.
Lindsay Lohan, Conan O'Brian, Jerry O'Connell, Enya, and Sinéad O'Connor are Irish.

Tá ann mórán déarfainn má d'fhéadainn labhairt Gaeilge, ach ní féidir liom. Níl mé líofa inti, ach tha mi fileanta sa' Ghàidhlig.

A person named Irish, is kickass, knows how to handle shit that people give to her. Is beautiful no matter what people say. If they talk shit about her step up becasue she'll bust yo ass. She's outgoing, loves to dance, party, and drink. She's pretty, smart, and has a unique name that no one barely has. A person named "Irish" is usually a friendly and nice who hangs out with everybody. And pretty popular in school. Pretty damn funny too.
Goddamn, whose that beautiful girl walking by?

Ohh, thats Irish.

She just roasted that girl.

Hell yeah she always does, she knows how to handle shit when people give it to her.

Good, decent people from small country in western Europe. Have own language- hÉireann go bra(Ireland forever), have own type of moonshine- poitín, have own types of sport(Gaelic football and hurling), many are farmers, despise travelers, chavs, strong cheeses and the English. Fond of chips, tractors, the french, good whiskey on a Saturday night or after mass on a Sunday, usually quite religious, looked down upon by the English for bullshit long standing racial reasons and in general very kind, welcoming and generous people often involved in bilateral and multilateral aid along with peacekeeping and charitable organisations.
