~noun
Reference to a generation of Irish born in the late eighties and nineties raised in a period of economic abundance. A generation apart, they have grown up with a strong sense of entitlement, privilage and consumerism. This contrasts with the traditional Irish urge to ascend through struggle. With the world financial crisis of the late noughties, they have been left adrift in a world of hardship they cannot comprehend. And have no experience to draw on that the generations before them and those following will have in simply making do.
Traits of the Celtic Tiger Cub include-
An inability to comprehend the word: No.
Indignation at authority figures for the audacity of existing.
A lack of pride in their alcoholism as they are bereft of the means to purchase colombian marching powder.
Being spoiled c**ts.
