An ethnic group that originated from the island of Ireland. Historically, they were proficient tradesmen, artisans, and founders of the Gaelic
language. They were some of the fiercest fighters in Europe, and were grouped in familial tribes under a democratically elected King or Queen. The Romans refused to fight them, but the English decided they were up to the task. After a small time period of only 400 years, they finally conquered Ireland. By the mid-late 1800's it became safe enough for an Englishman to travel to all parts of Ireland. Since they now had complete and total control, the English decided to, as usual, abuse their subjects. The Irish were treated as second-class citizens, sold as slaves overseas, and made to pay harsh taxes. In the early 1900's the Irish fought back, and the southern portion of Ireland regained freedom. The northern part did not. To this day there is hope that Ireland will once again be reunited as a whole country once again. With the advent of Brexit
, these dreams will likely be realized within the next 30 years.
The children of Ireland can be found across the globe, and can be recognized from their high cheekbones, mid-depth eye-sockets, downward slanted eye-sockets, pointed eyebrows, pale white skin, thin lips, broad shoulders, strong chins, and mostly clan based surnames. ie Kelly, O'Donnell, ect.
