As an Irishman who now lives in England, I can assure you that it is. Especially where I live.

I get it quite a bit in Birmigham/Digbeth/Aston sort of area. Especially from the older folk, because the IRA bombed a pub around here back in the day. Not so much anywhere else though to be honest. London quite a bit when I visit but they're mostly fine. Northerners love it

hey now, Jonathan Swift proposed a very simple solution. Just eat the Irish children, and use their skin for leather. but nooooo you people thought it was "unethical"...

I'm aware that "a modest proposal" was a satirical essay

They aren't countries we went to war with, it's a very disputable list of countries that the British have invaded It also counts rogue merchants, generalsm etc. that had no affiliation to the crown or parliament but are on the list because they are British

Example: We never went to war with Portugal, but we did have troops on the ground... to help them, at their request, during the Napoleonic Wars. I wouldn't count that as invading. Another would be Poland. We never invaded Poland but we did invade the land that they are now set on when it was Russia.

To be fair if we look back far enough into history the irish (at least the residents of the land we call Ireland now at the time) actually managed to invade the british isles and hold onto some fair ammount of land (mostly scottish)

On top of all that lets not forget that the normans were invited over initially, there was no invasion as such they just didn't leave.



And yes I am Irish, Louth and proud.

Limerick. From what I recall, we did invade England as well, but that was when Rome owned it, so it was mostly to gain slaves, nothing personal. But that's nowhere close to anything the Brits did to Ireland.

And I'd back you up on that yes, I just find it important that people remember it's not like we haven't had a go either, Limrick is pretty good, almost wound up in LIT actually before a closer college gave me a spot.

Dude, firstly, it was a joke about the Irish's affinity for potatoes, and second, we know, England was and still is a bunch of assholes, who is basically your old grandfather who fought in WW2, who gets drunk, and rambles about how awesome he was in his prime, except when his viagra doesn't get him fully erect, he pulls out a pump action, and starts pelting his neighbor's houses with 12 gauge buck shot, ******* up their houses, and occasionally killing a pet, but no matter what anyone wants to do, they can't do it, because he's old, senile, and is the only one on the block who can own a gun.

Two men were sitting next to each other at a bar.
After a while, one guy looks at the other and says, "I can't help but think, from listening to you, that you're from Ireland."
The other guy responds proudly, "Yes, that I am!"
The first guy says, "So am I! And where about from Ireland might you be?"
The other guy answers, "I'm from Dublin, I am."
The first guy responds, "Sure and begora, and so am I! And what street did you live on in Dublin?"
The other guy says, "A lovely little area it was, I lived on McCleary Street in the old central part of town."
The first guy says, "Faith & it's a small world, so did I! And to what school would you have been going?"
The other guy answers, "Well now, I went to St. Mary's of course."
The first guy gets really excited, and says, "And so did I. Tell me, what year did you graduate?"
The other guy answers, "Well, now, I graduated in 1964."
The first guy exclaims, "The Good Lord must be smiling down upon us! I can hardly believe our good luck at winding up in the same bar tonight. Can you believe it, I graduated from St. Mary's in 1964 my own self."
About this time, another guy walks into the bar, sits down, and orders a beer.
The bartender walks over shaking his head & mutters, "It's going to be a long night tonight, the Murphy twins are drunk again."

Holy ****, I've never seen the Cliffs of Moher from that angle before! But they are absolutely beautiful as always, I miss them.


Here's one of my pics of them from when I went, taken from just passed the little castle you can see at the top of the posted picture. The only thing I'd change is that I'd gone on a less rainy day, it was too foggy to get a very clear picture.

Canadafag here, I went to visit my family in Ireland and also stopped by the cliffs. That **** was so sketchy since other than the trenches you walk in, there is nothing to stop you from walking off the edge. Also, fun fact: The cliffs of Moher are the cliffs depicted in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince when Dumbledore took Harry and forced Harry to make him drink the ****** up liquid.

I am also a Canadafag, and yeah, I always loved the cliffs after seeing the movie, and really wanted to go see them in person. They are far more stunningly intimidating in real life than any film could capture.

The lack of fences is Irelands version of natural selection. Too stupid that you walk off the edge of a cliff? You deserved to die.

Kylemore Abbey (Connemara in County Galway).
Glendalough Valley (County Wicklow).
Ardmore (County Waterford).
Lismore Castle (County Waterford)
As much as it's mentioned all the time, Giants Causeway (County Antrim, Northern Ireland). It is a really cool place.
Charles Fort (Kinsale, County Cork).
Bunratty Castle (County Clare)

You'll find awesome places in between these too. I hope we treat you well here, have a good time!
