JohnJoe: No thanks yank, Im not QUEER!
GAA is better than lacrosse.
Ireland is better than America in many varying ways.
However, there are quite a few Irish who claim to know their history but don't. While they Yank bash they tend to forget that without US Irish American funds they never would have been able to fight their war of independence and form the Irish Republic, and the peace talks in the North would never have happened without US involvement. So without those Irish-Americans who you say aren't Irish (we don't claim to be - note that we say Irish American. Once Ireland starts having more immigrant offspring they'll begin to get the concept)Ireland would still be part of the UK. Your country was basically bought with US cash and guns, some Irish Americans even came over from the US to fight for it as well. Some would say the Irish are rather ignorant and ungrateful. But then I guess that it would be stereotyping to judge an entire country on a few yobs who hate Americans.
Anyone who is a citizen of the Republic of Ireland is Irish. Treat immigrants well when they arrive in Ireland, remember that the Irish were taken in when they went to England, Australia and the US.
People are indescript.
Food, roads and beer mediocre.
I visited Southern Ireland and found it horrible.
