Something that most Americans consider themselves to be.
American: "I'm Irish!"
Me: Oh cool, were your parents born there?
American: No...
Me: Grandparents?
American: No, but my great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grandfather was!

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?

The only race of people capable to build and destroy New York City.
The early New York Irish built New York, but after they were pissed they burnt it down..then built it back up

Girls tend to be hotties with fiery tempers. Red or dark hair, ivory skin and green eyes are trademarks. Guys tend to be hardworking and fun at parties.
See that Irish looking girl over there? I'm so glad she broke up with that greasy Italian and got with that nice guy Sean.

1. A person who comes from the great country of Ireland. Well known for being able to handle drink unlike the British or the Americans and being able to handle semi-automatic weaponry due to the fact that half the country is serving or have served in either the FCA or the Slua in their spare time. See Steyr AUG

2. A language that will be dead in twenty years if the Polish, Romanians and Nigerians keep coming in. (Not trying to make that sound racist)

3. What 50 million Americans who've never been to Ireland claim to be.
I'm proud to be Irish

The principle race of Éireann (Ireland).

Also refers to their language, Irish (Gaelic).

They still bear a strong grudge towards the English for the centuries of prejudice and grief heaped on them.

Stereotyped as heavy drinkers, potato bingers, and red-headed.

Not all of them drink, and if they do, not to the extreme that's shown in sterotypes; stereotypes cover only a minority of a people. And they do not eat potoatoes all day, everyday.

And only 10% of Ireland's people are natural redheads; the vast majority are
dark-haired.
Lindsay Lohan, Conan O'Brian, Jerry O'Connell, Enya, and Sinéad O'Connor are Irish.

Tá ann mórán déarfainn má d'fhéadainn labhairt Gaeilge, ach ní féidir liom. Níl mé líofa inti, ach tha mi fileanta sa' Ghàidhlig.
