The fakey, out-of-a-box Irishness that insists on the same damned songs and the same damned menu and the same damned Guinness advertisements on the wall of every Irish bar outside of Ireland.
Seen in nearly every film which features a non Irish actor doing an Irish accent. Notable exceptions include Daniel Day Lewis in "In The Name of The Father" and Bradd Pitt in "Snatch".
"Every St.Patricks day Jose liked to emphasize his Irish roots by wearing green, drinking Guiness and referring to the 'old country' but it smacked of Paddywhackery"
