6 Important Things To Know About Irish People

The people from the small green island in the northwest of Europe are direct descendants of Celts. They remain fiercely proud of their Celtic heritage and celebrate it every year on St Patrick’s Day by wearing lots of green, drinking lots of Guinness, and singing lots of songs about leprechauns. The following six points will help everyone understand what makes that small green island in the northwest of Europe such an amazing place and its people that much more lovable.

They Love St Patrick’s Day

In fact, everyone around the world loves St Patrick’s Day! On the 17th of March every year, the whole planet goes green and celebrates with Irish people. This day is the national day of Ireland and a public holiday so expect big celebrations around this time. The day is named after St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. St Patrick’s Day is especially big in North America where millions of Irish descendants live and celebrate with great joy. The day was made an official national holiday in 1760 by George III who invited Irish soldiers serving in English regiments to march as part of the St Patrick’s Day parade through the streets of London. Irish people are well known for partying so expect this day of revelry to be one that is remembered for many years to come.

They Spread Joy Around The World

Irish people can be found in almost every corner of the globe. More than 30 million Irish-Americans are living in the US, while many more can be found in Canada and Australia. There are also large communities of people from the Emerald Isle all over the world, including England, Scotland, Wales, and Wales. Wherever you go, you will find Irish people trying to have a good time and share their fun-loving attitude with the rest of the world. They bring their music, dance, and their love for a good time to wherever they are in the world. This is why you will often see that Irish bars are always crowded and lively wherever they are located.

They Know Their Music

The Irish like to sing and dance, which is why they invented U2, Thin Lizzy, The Dubliners, The Pogues, Boyzone, Westlife, and other famous music bands that have spread joy all around the world for many years. So expect any gathering of Irish people to turn into a full-blown concert where everyone sings along at the top of their voices while clapping away in unison to some fantastic Irish tune or another. In addition to being expert drinkers and party people par excellence, they also have rhythm in their blood which explains why so many great musicians have been from Ireland over the years including Jimi Hendrix, Rory Gallagher, Chris de Burgh, Van Morrison, The Chieftains, U2, and Thin Lizzy.

They Are Great Storytellers

The Irish are known for their amazing sense of humor and the ability to tell a good joke or just one heck of an entertaining story that has people hanging on every word. The best Irish jokes are long, elaborate stories peppered with colorful language, cultural references, and clever punchlines. As such they will often leave their audience in stitches! They also have an uncanny knack of making small talk with almost anyone anywhere whenever they get the chance which is what makes them so likable. This is what makes St Patrick’s Day celebrations so enjoyable as everyone gets together no matter who or where they are to have a great time.

They Are Very Friendly And Helpful

When you meet an Irish person, be sure she or he will greet you with a smile. Irish people love to chat and get to know one another regardless of who they’re talking to. They will be more than glad to assist you if there is anything you need help with or just show you around their home city when traveling through their country. If an Irish person tells you that “everyone is welcome” in his/her house it means everyone literally, regardless of race, gender, color, creed, etc. They often go out of their way to make visitors feel like they are at home away from home and the whole world should learn from them in this regard!
