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?

" Negroes turned inside out." The Irish are a cultured and intelligent people who have been discriminated against in both England and America. Believe me, those WASPs weren't always holding parades for us. They used to burn our churchs, lynch us, fire us first, hire us last. Plus, since we were all poor, did all that jigging, and drank a lot they didn't consider us white. They used to call us "negroes turned inside out." So don't take your heritage for granted, my fellow Irishmen. We've been through a lot. Thats probably why Irish women are some of the most strong-willed, brave women in the world, a long with black, italian, and jewish women. The same goes for our hard-working men, who gave their lives on the assembly lines. Never forget.
Know your roots, my fellow irishmen. Irish pride.
