Kiss Me I'm....

I don't think that there is a hair trait for the Irish in terms of colour or texture.

Think I'm 3b-ish...maybe some 3a there too...plus wavy roots....I'm just a mixed bag! CG since August '05
I'm a wavy brunette, with blue eyes and skin that freckles. Yes, I'm Irish-American. 75% to be exact. Although my one grandmother's maiden name could be Scottish, dad always insisted her family came from Ireland, too. As far as I know, my ancestors arrived in NYC in the late 1800s, possibly a little earlier.

My family genealogy is pretty blurry, but we're generally Scots-Irish on my mama's side and German on my dad's. My mama's maiden name is very Scots-Irish and my grandma and great-grandma's maiden names were both Mc's. And I definitely have that hot Scots-Irish temper!

Is that enough Irish to play with you all? This'll be my first St. Paddy's day being 21 so I may go seek out some green beer for the holiday. Plus, they say Tuesday night is the new Thursday night is the new Friday night!

Scottish/Irish here. My maiden name is very Scottish.
From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
I have Scots-Irish...
I'm mostly Welsh though.
I have a wee bit of Irish in my family tree. But I love me a Guinness any day.
Thars a wee bit in me bloodline. Mostly Scotch and a big mix of other Western European ethnicities.

In honor of St. Patty's day coming up and the original post, here's an ode to the Irish. (didn't write it me self).

What Shall I Say About the Irish?

The utterly impractical, never predictable,
Sometimes irascible, quite inexplicable, Irish.Strange blend of shyness,
pride and conceit,
And stubborn refusal to bow in defeat.
He's spoiling and ready to argue and fight,
Yet the smile of a child
fills his soul with delight.
His eyes are the quickest to well up with tears,
Yet his strength is the strongest
to banish your fears.
His hate is as fierce as his devotion is grand,
And there is no middle ground
on which he will stand.
He's wild and he's gentle,
he's good and he's bad.
He's proud and he's humble,
he's happy and sad.
He's in love with the ocean,
the earth and the skies,
He's enamoured with beauty wherever it lies.
He's victor and victim, a star and a clod,
But mostly he's Irish—
“It was only a sunny smile and little it cost in the giving but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald

Curly brown hair is not an Irish trait, nor is red hair. Red hair is more a Scottish thing. Generally Irish people have dark hair, but usually straight / wavy.

Sorry, that sounded snappy! Wasn't meant to. I just meant that like a lot of stereotypical characteristics we associate with countries, some are not true. The curly Irish (usually redhead) is more a Hollywood production. Not saying they don't exist, just they're not a majority.

Scotch Irish here. Strawberry/golden blond curly hair, medium blue eyes, pale skin with brown freckles (not orange ones - most of my family has the orange ones, but not me & my brother).

I don't drink beer, green or otherwise, but I will be raising a glass of whiskey with my family

I have the hot temper, but age and a bit of wisdom has taught me to control it My hubby is thrilled about this!!!
I'm 1/2 Irish and 1/2 Italian, but look all Italian.

I am married to a 100% Irishman. I have his 7 brothers and sisters along with their significant others and children and his parents over every year for a New England boiled dinner.

We are talking major, major eating and drinking and irish music. His parents both in their 80's, consider this their favorite holiday.

It's alot of work, but a lot of fun.

Enjoy!

Yup...my maternal grandmother is of Irish-German descent. My other grandma was English-Welsh, so I've got 3/4 of the British isles represented!

bostonwaves, I haven't had a New England boiled dinner in years. My mom used to always make it for St. Patrick's day when I was growing up. I always liked it.

I'm Scots-Irish and my shamrock tattoo proves it I saw a funny card the other day:

"Kiss me, I'm Irish. What a bunch of malarkey. How about you buy me dinner, I'm Irish."

An Irish blessing you've probably heard:

"Here's to you and here's to me, here's to friends we'll always be. And if sometime we should disagree, well, screw you, here's to me."

Most of the Irish people I know (and I know a lot living near the PA/OH/WV border) have blonde hair, fair skin, and fine features (upturned nose, thin lips). My mom is Irish/German to show you what I mean: http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/8191/myfamily2.jpg

I'm 1/4 Irish, though I think my dad's French/Puerto Rican/English side won out. I used to have a very light complexion, but it's more like my dad's olive/tan complexion now. I think my curls come from dad's side. My Irish grandpa had very fine straight black hair (my mom's hair is a perm - that pic was mid 90's). I don't think I've ever been told I look Irish, but the good thing about being a mutt is that you can claim a bit of everything.

I'm paler than my mother is, and my brother got my father's darker skin and superhuman ability to tan, lol. He also got our mother's straight hair and almond-shaped eyes, though they don't have the upward angle of hers, and he's gotten the Asian thing, too. I don't get it, myself.

I have 16 different backgrounds all yelling and fighting inside of my bloodstream, haha. It was pretty cool when a Russian girl was able to look at my eyes and tell that I had some Russian genes, but I never really get to claim anything but Caucasian. I actually thought it was pretty cool when somebody once asked me "what" I was.
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
I'm Scottish, Irish, and English. I have reddish brown hair, hazel eyes, and pale pinkish skin. I also have fine features (turned up nose, small mouth, high cheekbones).

My maiden name is typically English but my married name is very Irish. I look more Irish than anything, so that, along with my last name, leads people to assume I'm all Irish.

Both my parents had brown hair & green eyes. My sister is a blonde with blue eyes & lots of freckles. My brother has red hair, blue eyes & lots of freckles. I came out with brown hair, green eyes, & a little freckling across my nose, when I was younger. My Mother said I am more of the black Irish. I swear, I thought for years I was part black.

My Mother's maiden name was Spears (hopefully, no relation to Britney) & my Father's was Scott. I think I lean more to looking Scottish then Irish, whereas my siblings look more Irish to me.
