The IRA are sort of like Banksies who like killing people in a way.

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

How bad is it? Any where is it worst? Just asking as Im thinking of going to uni in England.

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

How can you assure that it is??

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.
#35 to #32 - anon (01/22/2014) [-]
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.

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.
User avatar #36 to #35 - Zydratejunkie (01/22/2014) [-]
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.

Actually... I'm Irish and we eat a ******* of potatoes my dad has a hat and walking stick like that and I have been to that leprechaun crossing sign.

A friend of mine moved to Belfast and claims it's only slightly better than living outside...

Our attitudes towards alcohol are dangerously irresponsible.
Our economy is ****** and all my friends are ******* off to Australia/Canada.
Our weather is **** . The rain is incessant.

There are a lot of things that annoy me about this ****** little island of ours on the fringe of Europe but I would never wish to have been born elsewhere for, despite our flaws, this island can boast the nicest people in the world. Where some may appear an asshole initially, the majority of our people are decent at heart. We are mostly down to earth and can take a joke and are not easily put down and what I think most important of all is that we are an educated people, unlike others (Looking at you America. Seriously, you sent a guy to the moon and now look at you. Step the **** up.)

Hasn't...hasn't there been rioting there the 90's or so?
#101 to #95 - jakkp (01/22/2014) [-]
Pretty much. It's pretty ridiculous. Theyre still protesting over taking down a flag. It happened about a year or so ago...

my god...Seems like ireland is in a constant state of unrest.
#107 to #105 - jakkp (01/22/2014) [-]
Nah, just Northern Ireland. They're very traditional, to the point of arrogance. The rest of the country is actually pretty modern.
User avatar #108 to #107 - huntergriff ONLINE (01/22/2014) [-]
Ah. cool. so...there's...kind of a civil war of sorts, but without the war part.
#117 to #108 - jakkp (01/22/2014) [-]
Basically the majority of the northern populace is incredibly proud to be british. They just havent realised that no one else really cares anymore. I'd understand maybe two/three centuries ago they would have to fight for this kinds **** , but the rest of Ireland has just lost interest, while theyre still doing march after parade after march after parade to show how british they are. In saying this, I have a girlfriend who is from, lives and studies in Northern Ireland, so not all of them are like this, just the vast majority of them. Ive no problem having a section of Ireland that belongs to the UK, it does have it's benefits, but it just always seems like theyre fighting over something that the other side just doesnt care about anymore.
User avatar #113 to #108 - fuckberries (01/22/2014) [-]
well when the IRA is involved, it kinda is a war too
User avatar #115 to #113 - huntergriff ONLINE (01/22/2014) [-] much a civil war lasting from the 90's until currently over different, random stuff, right?
User avatar #116 to #115 - fuckberries (01/22/2014) [-]
That's what I'm getting out of it. I mean I live in New Jersey, USA. So I don't have all the details.

There are still splinter groups like the real IRA and the continuity IRA operating and they still plant bombs put as much as they used to. Over Christmas there were a few bomb attempts in a shopping center and one of them set themselves on fire with a fire bomb. There are places still very bitter about the past such as the ones in my area which are the ones in the flag protests causing all the crap.

Northern and the Republic of Ireland aren't in Britain. Norti is in the UK (Her Majesty's United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland)m and the Republic of Ireland is in the British Isles.

Humon (Scandinvia and the World) and the authors of Histeria are pretty darn close, the latter actually revolving around the British isles. Both are inspired by Hetalia Axis Powers (sequelled by World Series and Beautiful World); a webcomic by Himaruya, he has a lot of inaccuracies, and it's downright racist, but not in the way that it jams a country's national personality, so to speak, down the audience's thoat, and it's shown to be inaccurate in the stereotype ie America is called fat but he's probably the fittest of them all, he's just a little to dense to know that muscle weighs more than fat.

Poland ball is simply "murica **** yeah" or *European country that can't speak proper English*

It's fun to watch/read, if you don't mind that the first comics are pretty ****** in the artwork and he never actually finishes an event. Halloween...we need the ending, we need to know what Romania has against Eren Jaeger!

The anime studio recently changed, too. All sparkles and **** . And the dub makes it even funnier, what with accent jokes and historical references and outtakes and that fact that it doesn't piss you off with the verbal ticks the Japanese speaking characters have "ve ve ve doitsu" "aiyah/aru" "da" "su-san" shut the **** up)

I appreciate you fighting for the truth of our fair set of islands, but until we eliminate the phrase "Queen of England" from all language everywhere, it's not a fight we're going to win.

I'm not going to say this is how all of America views Ireland but a portion definitely view us as quite a backwards place.

For, example a met a group of American students last summer who were travelling around the country and I was asked, quite sincerely, "have ye heard of the moon landing over here?"

So then we proceeded to give them quite insulting things to say in 'Gaeilge' instead of pick up lines.
