I lived in Ireland for 6 months last year and I found that in general Irish women were quite feisty, but not aggressive. They wont give you an inch in an argument, but they are quite sweet at the same time.
Of course is it really just Irish women who are stuborn? I mean will any woman give you an inch in an argument? I have yet to meet one.
By the way Foeni that's an awsome picture of Tara.
