Remember this list when someone asks "Are you Irish?"

You know you're Irish if...

The person that you insult most is probably your best friend.


You're strangely poetic after a few beers.


You don't know the words, but that doesn't stop you from singing!

You have no idea how to make a long story short.

You can't wait for the other guy to stop talking so you can start talking

You can't go a day without saying 'Jaysus'.

You have a gift for swearing.

You still call your mother "mammy" even though you're a grown adult

Drinking 'tae' is your favorite past time.


Craic doesn't mean what Americans think it means...

And there ya have it!
