1. Originally American Branch of the Irish Republican Brotherhood, the term came to be associated with the entire movement. Founded in the 1850s, the aim of the organisation was the establishment of an Irish Republic independent of British rule. They led a failed rebellion in Ireland in 1867, and were also known for carrying out raids on British interests in Canada.

2. The term has become associated with support for the Irish republican movement, in latter times with support for the provisional IRA in Northern Ireland.

3.Also used by ignorant Northern Ireland protestants/ Unionists (judging by other posts here with no idea of its origin) as derogatory term for Irish Catholics/ Nationalists.
1. The Fenian-led rebellion of 1867 was a tragic failure.

2. My Brother James is an out-and-out Fenian, he won't rest until the Brits leave Ireland for good

3. Fenian Bastards, who do they think they are, trying to get treated as equals to us northern prods (protestants)

Common term used to describe sub human beings that populate certain areas of Glasgow and Ulster.Can be recognised by green and grey/brown stained hooped shirts.The creatures have not evolved socially or economically for 150 years as immigrants,where as other immigrants to Scotland have flourished and become an inportant part of the Countries social and economic vitality,like Asians,Italians and English immigrants.
One important feature to remember about these unfortunate creatures is their parasitical nature,they don't work and beg mostly as a past-time,waiting to collect their giros.Also to be noted is that they are very paranoid,extremely ugly and have dreadful personal hygeine.
In closing,despite having their own schools,paid for by the state,and having every opportunity to better them selves they still remain to this day the festering bigotted sore on Scottish society.

a fenian is an Irish Catholic. loyal to the pope and disloyal to the queen and sovereign. decided to uprise in 1916 WHILST britain was at war with germany...what an honourable thing to do. also support celtic, because they think the times are changing for the club..infact until they can match over 50 titles they can keep trying because they have a good 20years left of the stuff. normally loyal to the IRA, responsible for killing man of our british citizens and young vulnerable children and pregant women as the Omagh bombing showed.

Term commonly used in N. Ireland to describe Catholics who desire a united Ireland and ram there tri-colour flag (strange how a person born within the UK would sport the flag of another country and claim it as there own) down other peoples throat. They however never have any trouble or much to say when it comes time to collect their state benefits in sterling sporting the image of Queen Elizabeth 2, which they would not get down south or in the unlikely event of a united Ireland.

This is not a term of endearment and infact derives from an irish word, so it's ironic that Protestants use a foreign (Irish) word against Catholics.
