A guy who can get pretty much any girl he wants by just smiling, laughing, and talking. She doesn't even have to be drunk and he doesn't even have to say anything interesting or sweet.
I went out with that Irish guy and he bought me lots of drinks. But little did he know, all he had to do was smile, laugh, and talk about how much he likes to build stuff.

one of the proudest and bravest nations on the face of the Earth,
lots of influential Americans think they have Irish roots.
the population of Ireland fell from close to 9 million to about 4 million in the famine at the end of the 19th century.
The Irish were invaded by the British and Brits had a stranglehold of the Irish for the better part of a millenium,
the British, led by their bloodthirsty leader Oliver Cromwell, terrorized Irish citizens and treated them like scum. Nevertheless the Irish remained strong and proud and in 1916 the British government pressured Michael Collins (the Nationalist leader) into signing a treaty which partly seperated them from the british
hey, did you know that the Irish Earl of Cork was the first man ever to experiment with chemistry?

the Irish are one of the best nations on the Earth

EVERYONE wishes they were Irish!!!

1. Someone who is from Ireland. the Irish have been given many stereotypes (both positive and negative)
2. some American who thinks it's cool to be Irish and so proclaims that they are indeed "Irish" because their great great grandfather may or may not have come from Ireland. see Poser.
Irishman: "i am from Ireland, thus i am IRISH"

Poser: "my Great, great Grandfather's cousin once met an Irishman, thus i am Irish"
