Personally l like them, all those fiddles, diddly-ay and tap-dancing, the way they ran out of potatoes so became American cops, how they say "bejaysus" and "top o' the mornin' to ya" and pronounce 'fuck' as "feck", always up for cutting eye-holes out of their balaclavas and having a good-natured scrap on a Friday night, their quaint names like Paddy and Bono, the little ones with no teeth who ride horses, have any of you met any people from "ireland" and can you confirm the above

Celts can't be bad people ^^ I love celtic music and folklore. :heart:

Observing Jacksepticeye seems to confirm most of what you said. 😁 I love his accent and sayings.

My short trip there way back then wasn't very enlightening though. Only issue was food I'd say, I struggled a lot to find any vegetables and fruits. Maybe Cork is different from the rest of Ireland though.

I met one once, in a bar, fairly into his pints. I said “the ease with which you drink makes me think you must be German…” it almost got ugly…

I think they are cool.
And also, they have a big share in the color green.

I dunno man, some Irish folk were mean to me in primary school, so I low-key think they're all subhuman scum. But I'm not prejudiced, I love St. Paddy's day and Leprechauns!

They seem like a nice group of people at first, but then you realize that fucking 🤮Bono🤮 is one of them.

I'll never forgive Bono for non-consensually downloading his pretentious album in my ipod. As far as I'm concerned, all the Irish share some of the blame for this crime against musical taste.

The temptation to make A Modest Proposal joke is very high but I won't for fear of introducing it to some who might think it's a good idea here.

I like the Irish accent and can confirm 95% of their surnames have an O at the beginning.

They are British with an even weirder accent, that's what I think.

Never met one, they're rare like fairies except in America where everyone is presumably, every Irish celebrity I heard sounds too obnoxious and exuberant for my taste. As a people however, they probably did the least damage to this world among all rich countries, because they didn't have the means to do it, or they just did it as Brit.

First the good - the slang, which I totally agree with you on:

Toilet - The Jacks
No fun (smb is no fun) - (He's) a minus craic
A man (when you don't like/know them) - Yer man
I won't be doing that - Will I, yea?!
I didn't - Did I feck
A woman you don't like - Geebag
It's raining heavily - It's pissing down
What's happening - Story horse?! and How's she cutting?
Half a pint - Glass of Guinness
Get lost - G'way on

Drunk:

Banjaxed
Mullered
In rag order
In ribbons
Out of your tree

Belfast specific:

Face - Bake, "Shut your bake" (shut your piehole's grandfather)
To be embarassed - To pull a beamer
Cop - Peeler
Be quiet - Howl yer whisht


Native irish better than irish americans even if they've sworn every one of his neighbours' mother lineage by 10am when the Guiness (-Stella Artois if they're half-English) runs out, just over minor stuff like I forgot my keys or why doesn't the dog shut up. In their own way it's all in good fun.

Do they really bend down and kiss the Blarney stone and all that?

American irish seem have turned irish culture in a once a year fandom meeting. Unironically, the Kennedys are (were) proud irish in their conduct and heritage, not sure it has been so for the majority of irish americans ever since. Maybe there's a truth to the saying peaceful times turn people soft.

Also, I hope Rep of Ireland reunifies with the north, they deserve it.

Yeah, and it's a ball of carbon dioxide. Why couldnt it be monoxide? Doubt it would cost them much more to do.

I love them, got them in my blood, my mom's dad is from there, his name is Patrick Flaherty, a descendant of the Ferocious O'Flahertys in Galway

Ironically my dad's side is 100% Welsh
