I just got back from there 2 months ago. I'd been there before. They're blessed with the best beer and their breakfast rocks. Something that foul shouldn't taste that good.

It's green and has white cliffs. The Celts originated from there. Northern Ireland still belongs to Britian but Ireland Ireland belongs to the Irish. The Catholics & Protestants were having a long-winded war (is it still happening?) The potato famine resulted in a lot of Irish immigrating to the US (thanks Great great Grandpa & Grandma). They have cool accents that I can't pull off. Oooo and the Irish temper is infamous...they're very passionate peeps.

Ireland is a better place to live than wherever you currently live, unless of course you live in Ireland. The Orange Men are a bunch of antagonists and shit stirrers. The English need to get the fuck out.

I love Ireland. I'm half Irish and lived there for much of 2004. Saw most of the country while I was there, but you can't beat the South East. Found that a good portion of the Irish people had difficulty understanding my thickish Australian accent.

Never been there, but I must say the fifty percent of his genes my boyfriend got from that island worked out very nicely :icon_razz

My roots run deep in Irish (and all of the British Isles for that matter) soil, albeit centuries ago. My last name is derived from D'Oyley. And, I love Guinness. ;)

One of my dreams is to visit Ireland and meet a nice Irish man.

Serious I've always wanted to visit Ireland and I am going to one day.

When I lived in New York City I knew quite a few Irish people
Most were illegal immigrants. They were good people, hard working
very tough and like to fight. but when you became friends with them
It was hard to find more caring friends.

Ah, James Joyce....
I once read Ulysses. Isn't it fitting that Ireland's most famous author makes no fucking sense at all?

And by the way, my Father is 100 percent Irish, which makes me 33.3 percent Irish (you see, I was conceived during a three-way). Therefore, I can make cracks about Ireland, and it's perfectly all right.

Anyway, I'd take Ireland over most other countries. The Irish seem like good people (except for my drunken bastard of a Father...and his drunken bastard of a son).
