I know there's a pocket of Irish people on this. I dunno if this has been done before the closest I found was the Irish metal thread.

Set this up so I can actually locate and see how many Irsh are on this, and so we can have conversations/screaming matches about Irish issues. Usually we end up taking a back seat to English and American problems.

Also, any Americans that want to ask us about leprechauns(they don't exist and that's an end to it)or that are just obsessed with Ireland, as the stereotypical American is(not saying all of you are, because that'd be creepy)

C'mon i know theres some Irish out there

Well...the Celts were spread all throughout Europe...and the first literary mention is from Ancient Greece..


But then, they knew everything before anyone else.

Im Irish. Real Irish, born in the hospital in Sligo. Used to live in Laitrom but I was quite young at the time, i dont remember much of it. Now I live in england. Visit every year to see the family though. Favorite place to visit. It always amazes me how many friends I'll always have there, no matter how distantly related I am. I can go into my third cousins house and he'll set up a bed, and make me a good meal, and I could stay for a week out of the blue and they wouldnt mind. Ireland FTW!!

1)The Irish are not the only Celts.
2)The Scots are Irish, they displaced the previous inhabitants the Picts.

WTF is wrong with you Irish up there?

The Celts became freaking Scottish and Irish. And Welsh for that matter.

Irish is more Gaelic than Celtic.

EDIT - What Meths said.

And Ancient race?

The Egyptians and the Greeks are Ancient. The Celts didn't emerge till about 800 years ago.

The Celts are generalisation created in the 19th Century more likely the scots and Irish were a tribe of Britanii or Venetii or Belgic settlers who move north then then either settled in scotland or Wales and then sailed Westwards to Ireland to settle there.

1.I never said the Irish were the only Celts.
2.As far as I can see, your second point has no relevance to what I said. I simply said the term Celts isn't used widely anymore. We are of Celt descendancy, and I never said the Scots werent Irish.

Technically the Celts only lived in the south of England and then were forced West and north when the Romans came and many of the Britanii became Romanicised.

No no, someone said that the Celts gave Scotland Celtic, and you said the Celts were an 'ancient' race and 'we' are called Irish people now.

What he was saying was that you gave them jack all, they have as much right to call a football team Celtic as you do. They are also Celtic.

EDIT - You should really know more about your own history if you're going to make accusations like that.

EDIT 2 - And lol at the 'we gave you the only thing you are known for'.

So the fact that they took Whiskey from you, knocked off the 'e' and perfected it into an internationally adored drink is insignificant? Scotland also has an awesome history and are a crucial feature in British history and therefore world history.

Since pretty much all Scots are descended from Irish people it seems a bit odd to say that.

THe Scoti came over from Ireland and the Picts intergrated with them and that was the kingdom of alba. Then Northumbrian became part of alba and that was pretty much Scotland set.

The only quarrel I have with the place are the southerners. I work in an off-licence and also Sainsbury's.


Now...not only do they expect these shops to accept their Euro currency, but also expect to be given back Euro change. And most of them are extremely rude about this.

Me: £10, please.
Them: Euro!
Me: Ok...that's about 12Euros, 15 will cover it. Oh, no, we don't take the coins.
Them: You wha'? Jesus Christ...and do I get my change back in Sterling now?! That's a disgrace.


I would be feeling lucky enough that a foreing currency is so openly accepted...
