    Never did I think there has to be a guide to what not to say Ireland. Have they gone as mental as America?

    Mrs. Potato Head



  16. andre lazarevic on December 19, 2021 at 3:09 pm

    why potato? why would that make them mad not sad? does it remind them when they murdered all the welsh in the famine, cause clearly the irish get on fine in the US so the persecution of the irish in the united states can only mean that they werent irish or scots but some other celts, so i think that only leaves the welsh that probably at some point had a sizable population on the irish island as well before catholocism



  17. john gesnaldo on December 19, 2021 at 3:09 pm

    🤣🤣😂😂🤣🤣



  22. Stihl Extreme on December 19, 2021 at 3:13 pm

    I love the Irish accent and would appreciate the conversation with an Irish native! 🙂

    I find the Irish accent very attractive and captivating and appreciate the tonality and pronunciation of their words…

    I’ve heard the common stereotype pronunciations of the Irish, I wouldn’t dream of asking someone to say those things…

    People aren’t meant to entertain based on accent or culture..

    They’re people and deserve respect and acknowledgment of their being…

    Being from Wales, I personally don’t get people asking me to speak Welsh or say Welshism’s, probably because we don’t stand out as much I guess…

    Got big love for the Irish though! 🙂
    They’re nice people… 👊🏻👍🏻



  23. Barbara Matanovic on December 19, 2021 at 3:14 pm

    Ima go to Ireland and say all these things to one person 😂



  41. Matt Rosa on December 19, 2021 at 3:37 pm

    I hate to be that American stereotype of, I’m Irish too!, lol… but I am! Lol I love Ireland even though I haven’t gone there yet. I’ve been to the UK but Ireland wasn’t sadly on the itinerary. Although, I’m a mix of a lot of ethnicities and Irish isn’t the biggest chunk so I withhold from saying I’m Irish. But my grandma on my dad’s side was a red head lol and my uncle and dad growing up had super light hair, but it got darker as they got older. I’m not sure where the name is originated from, but her maiden name was Weisz. Tbh, I can’t remember if it was double s or single. Lol buy its what they put on my birth certificate. 🤣

    Anyways, I’m proud of everything I am and have been on a life quest of learning all of the native tongues of my heritage. Lol there’s 7! 🤣

  44. KittyHerder on December 19, 2021 at 3:41 pm

    My grandmother was Irish, so in the late 1800s and early 1900s, people actually did say "Top of the morning to you." and the response is "And the balance of the day to you!"



  45. Jimmy The Clown on December 19, 2021 at 3:41 pm

    Talk about Morrissey 😁💕🍀



  46. Tanner C on December 19, 2021 at 3:42 pm

    I’m wasn’t born in Ireland but I have a big family amount that came from Ireland and everyone assumes I have the stereotypical traits of an Irish all because of my ancestry



  47. havingalook2 on December 19, 2021 at 3:43 pm
