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.

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.
