Adj., describing anything from Ireland.

Has stereotypical (racist?) associatons of drinking and/or fighting (hardly unique to Ireland, see Chav). These associations arose from anti-Irish bigotry in 19th century England and can be seen perpetuated in Temple Bar in Dublin any night of the week. Often by tourists. Some misguided Irish people also like to perpetuate this myth.

Positive associations include having a highly educated workforce (especially in IT industry), massive artistic output far out of proportion to the population (in music, literature, visual arts, etc.), and a population of warm fun-loving people. That last one is only partly true.
How do the Irish find time to produce all that music and literature with all the drinking and fighting?

An overly stereotyped group of upstanding individuals.
"We're the first ones drinking, the last ones standing, we're the only friends you got, while we're laughing and singin' your ears are all ringin', I guess we're everything you're not!!"

-"The Last Ones Standing" by Ceann (an irish rock band)

The only race of people capable to build and destroy New York City.
The early New York Irish built New York, but after they were pissed they burnt it down..then built it back up

A race of people who have come under attack by the ignorance of people (mainly living in America) who believe that due to their partial lineage back to the people of Ireland, are somehow "Irish", even though they have never even been to ireland. It is beleived widely to be a form of embarrasment or a way to escape the uninteresting and often boreing fact that these people are card holding americans whos mothers and fathers were born here as were they, and therefore have none of the crudentials that would validate and irish citizenship.

Ireland is also known to those who have lived there for its kick ass Fish and Chips and pride in Thick, rich, day-fresh guinness.
