An inability to leave the house, making one chronically late for everything. Affliciting almost exclusively the Irish population. In large groups, it becomes a disease, taking hours to leave the house as people have to constantly go back in to get keys, re-straighten their hair, change shoes, check that the D.V.R. is recording, etc.
Also known as IPT.
"Dude, why were you so late last night?"

All of the O'Connor clan came to the party. Can you imagine 19 people on Irish People Time trying to leave the house at once?
