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.

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?
