One of the few respectable countries left in Europe, Ireland suffered many years under the harsh rule of the evil British. However, by 1900's, the Irish were fed up and whooped their oppressors asses. The British government, being the fuckups that they are, divided Ireland into the Republic of Ireland and North Ireland (Ulster). Efforts from the fair and respectable Sinn Fein and other nationalist parties, to unite the island that is rightfully theirs, have been unsuccessful thanks to British vote "miscounting" and scare tactics.
Irish are often blamed for "harboring terrorists". However, the IRA is a freedom fighting organization who targets military more than civilian targets. British people, being the anti-American assholes they are, will always blame them getting their asses whooped by the IRA on the US because of rightful funds being sent to the IRA from businesses in Boston and New York.

Ireland is a beautiful country. Whenever I have visited with my Granny (Who is Irish) people have been so friendly. I love visiting Dublin and seeing all the famous landmarks, including the guiness factory. There is also the 'Cockles and Mussels song (Also called the Molly Malone song)' which I have loved since I was a child.
Molly Malone / Cockles And Mussels

Alive alive oh
alive alive ohh
Singing cockles and mussels
alive alive ohhh

In Dublin's fair city
where the girls are so pretty
I once met a girl named sweet Molly Malone
and she wheeled her wheel barrow
through the streets broad and narrow
singing cockles and mussels alive alive oh

She was a fish monger
and sure was no wonder
so were her mother and father before
and they wheeled their wheel barrow
through the streets broad and narrow
singing cockles and mussels alive alive oh

She died of a fever
and so one could save her
and that was the end of sweet Molly Malone
now her ghost wheels her barrow through the streets broad and narrow
singing cockles and mussels alive alive oh

Alive alive oh
alive alive ohh
Singing cockles and mussels
alive alive ohhh

One of Ireland's most famous folk songs!!

The place that everybody thinks is part of the UK but isn't (excluding Northern Ireland). The place where plenty of scangers try to be very anti-british using Irish sentences and slogans they don't understand.

Other then that, we're awesome :) Also without us, there'd be like...2 people in the USA today.

Ireland will one day become an Empire in the same way that happened in Star Wars Episode 3.
Ignorant American: Hey, you're from the UK, aren't you?
Irish person: Oh no, I'm from Ireland.
Ignorant American: Yeah the UK!
Irish person: Ireland's not part of the UK.
Ignorant American: Oh really? Whatever, so does the queen visit often?
Irish person: No, do she visit you?
Ignorant American: No stupid. We're not part of the UK like you!
Irish person: ...

Ireland the Island is formed by the 26 Counties of the Republic of Ireland and the War-Torn 6 Occupied Counties of the U.K., Northern Ireland, Ulster, Etc. Contrary to American and British belief we don't eat potatos to the extent we used to in the 1800s, We don't all drink Guinness (I do though, just sayin'), and We aren't all farmers with exaggerated Cork Accents. Although theres still violence in the North is has diminished but If you know any this about Irish History and her Rebellions we have a good 10-20 years at the most before we see another war with Britain. Most guys in Ireland love our Football, Rugby, and Gaelic Football, We are extremely proud of our National Rugby team, not so much our National Football Team, The Scottish Celtic Football Club is a really liked team down south, I'm a bit of a fan my self. Fun Fact there are more Irish in America and Australia than in Ireland itself you can thank the Brits for that. Some more misconceptions WE HAVE OUR OWN LANGUAGE, yes any it sound crazy that some people (Americans) Don't know it. LEPRECHAUNS ARE NOT REAL , NO Americans, NO! They arn't real ok.

Not Northern Ireland. So, would you dumbasses stop saying that Ireland's part of Britain, when it is infact NORTHERN Ireland that is part of Britain.
"Hi, I'm from Ireland."
"Oh cool dude you're British!"
"No, you idiot, that would make me NORTHERN Irish!"
