The race that put the 'ire' in Eire!

The race that produced the some of the world's most gorgeous human beings.

The race that included the most humorous human beings.

The race that produced some of the finest writers and social commentators.

The race created to make the English humble.

The race that clearly had the most fun on the Titanic.

The race that reminds us to believe in all things magical: leprechauns, fairies, rainbows, unicorns, four leaf clovers and pots of gold.

The race that reminds us of the power of story.

The race that knows how to die with aplomb.

The race that wrote the book on working hard & playing harder.

The race that knows the strength of family.

The race with the loveliest sweaters.

The race who know dancing cures many an ill.

The race that respects animals.

The race that creates the hottest firemen and officers.

The race you would want to be if you could choose!
And on top of all that:

The race that created 'Father Ted'

Enough Said!! ;)

Adj., describing anything from Ireland.

Has stereotypical (racist?) associatons of drinking and/or fighting (hardly unique to Ireland, see Chav). These associations arose from anti-Irish bigotry in 19th century England and can be seen perpetuated in Temple Bar in Dublin any night of the week. Often by tourists. Some misguided Irish people also like to perpetuate this myth.

Positive associations include having a highly educated workforce (especially in IT industry), massive artistic output far out of proportion to the population (in music, literature, visual arts, etc.), and a population of warm fun-loving people. That last one is only partly true.
How do the Irish find time to produce all that music and literature with all the drinking and fighting?

The toughest motherfuckers to have walked this earth. Don't fuck with the Irish, unless you like having no teeth and your girlfriend being fucked by Irish dudes.
"Yo, he's trying to pick a fight with me."
"Let's go knock his teeth out and fuck his girlfriend. That's what the Irish do."
