girlmeetschicago asked: This isn't really a question but whatever. I'm black and Irish and people are always surprised when I say that. It's like 1. I can identify with another culture besides African-American and 2. why are you so surprised? There are blacks in Ireland you fucking idiot. My god. It pisses me off every time I have this conversation with someone.

Guess that 85% of the people in Ireland that want legislation for abortion aren’t Irish! Then what the fuck am i?

Anonymous asked: Opinions on The Pogues?

Overall kinda positive I suppose. They’re more “authentic” than say The Dropkick Murphys (who i loathe). In general people in Ireland would have more time for them that The Dropkick Murphys most likely cause of Shane McGowan being of Irish parentage.

Its kinda annoying how Celtic Fusion/Irish American based trad bands get more attention than actual bands in Ireland. Theres no denying that Irish trad makes a tonne of money in the US but theres plenty of Irish bands contemporary/traditional that dont get the same attention. Heres an article that explains it better than me.

Anonymous asked: I recently got back from visiting my grandparents in Ireland. Upon telling my friend about some funny story that occured during the visit he asked "So, they speak English in Ireland? Well, most of them?". This is a guy who constanly talks about his Irish and Scottish heratige. I'm a bit concerned about the American education system now.

Iv met people in the US who were surprised to hear that you can be black and Irish and that they were black people in Ireland. As well as being unable to place Ireland on a map. :/

Today I was told by a customer that I have the prettiest blue eyes… Then he said I should have a boyfriend and asked why I was single…


Because I’m waiting for a British or an Irish man to sweep me off of my feet.

Good Luck with that

Morrissey and Robbie Keane appreciation time

The Irish Americans got good jobs, and they even got into office - they became part of the communities. We tried to do that here in England but they didn’t want us. We were just the butt of the joke. We were stupid or drunk. We had to hide who we were. When I went to visit my sister in Chicago I wasn’t surprised that she had got involved in the civil rights movement, but one night we went to dinner with my cousins and they were being racist. They talked about black people the way the English talked about us. I told them they were being hypocrites. I was only sixteen but I couldn’t believe it. They didn’t really take much notice of what I said. Now you see the Irish in England do it too. There is a difference between the Irish Americans and the Irish in Britain, but there’s also a difference between the Irish that remember what it was like, and the Irish with big cars and houses that think they’re better than other immigrants.
I asked my Mum why she felt the culture of Irish Americans differed from that of the Irish in England and this was her answer. I thought it was kind of ace. (via titotansey)

This blogs main function is to reveal the embarrassing glorified view people have of Ireland.
I will mainly be calling out people who stereotype Ireland/Irish people/Irish History, glorify the Troubles, openly discriminate aganist Irish Travellers/Irish Catholics/ Irish Protestants, Irish Americans who believe its ok to use the N word or be openly racist.
And correcting One Direction fandom.
