    I have realised that there is so much stuff that is of Irish influence that people love, and there is no society to talk about the stuff on here.

    Guiness is the most notable of all, but there is a huge musical scene in Ireland with bands like U2, The Corrs as well as Riverdance, Lord of the Dance (even though Michael Flatley is American). There is just so much going on that has Irish roots.

    And of course, there is that wonderful scenery. I just love the beauty that can be found in some parts of Ireland. I cannot think of any other country that is as stunning as Ireland. I cannot even think of any other country that has such a vast number of books dedicated to photographs of the land.

    So in short, this soc is for anything and everything Irish. Please join as Ireland is one amazing country. (To please whoever it was that neg repped me for saying this, I do have knowledge of Ireland, and to me, and many other people who are and aren't from the country, it is amazing.)

    Both the Republic of Ireland flag and Northern Ireland flags are shown here so as to eliminate any accusations of bias. This is NOT a political society, and referrs to the entire island of Ireland.

    Well, everyone I know thinks that the "top o th mornin to ya" thing from Cork is the only thing that the Irish ever say! I'll get rid of the Cork part though, and sorry for any offence.

    Glad to see some good Irish people on here I always seem to have a better time out when I'm with Irish friends than British ones, but I've never been able to figure out why!!

    Oh, and TrentEnd, if I were you, I'd keep on fighting that urge, unless you want us to let rip with a load of English jokes (although most I know are about David Beckham!!).

    It's not from Cork though...why you keep saying it is? It's some cliche saying that no Irish person I've ever met says, probably made up by some American movie company....

    I said it was a Cork thing cos that is what everyone keeps telling me, except you. My grandfather who lived in Ireland for about 20 years or so, my dad who knows loads of scarily random stuff, and some TV chat show host!! I think the guy from Cork is probably the only one who is right.

    You are right, it is most likely an American movie thing, and possibly the movie thing was based in Cork, hence the incorrect association.

    So do I! Have been a fan for years!

    I really badly wonna go to Ireland sometime. Which reminds me... Mum got me a DVD with a bodhran tutorial last week. I've had the thing for 2 years but was never able to play it. Now I can finally learn!! (Well, after the exams...)

    So yeah sign me up please! Oh and maybe ask Pig if we can have that Irish flag as a logo. :cool:

    Mine is Dimming of the Day. It suits my vocal range best hehe I love singing along. It doesn't always have to be Andrea who does the singing! Like in No Frontiers, Sharon and Caroline do an AMAZING job. I wish Caro would sing more she can sing quite high.

    I'd have to disagree with you, Jim is amazing and without him there wouldn't be any Corrs. However, they sure are sexy!

    In my User CP it still says I have a picture or 2 of Andrea Corr on here still uploaded hehe. Think it was in the LGBT thread.

    Hear, hear. Jim is brilliant But the girls are definitely sexy

    My fave song is Peggy Gordon but Dimming of the Day comes right after.

    The ladies are great, but Jim is the link to the whole thing. Without him, it just wouldn't work. And did you know Jim and Gayle are gonna have a baby! Won't be long now before we see The Corrs junior!


    I want to go out to Ireland too, have been meaning to for a while, and I might do this year if I can afford it!

    Yup and Sharon's pregnant too! Now all we need is a proposal from Shaun (sp?), although I don't think the men who fancy Andrea will agree with me.

    See, I prefer Caroline to Andrea. Caroline just has a laugh and is great, but Andrea is more, I dunno, but there's just something about her, like she's holding back at times.

    Plus, female Irish drummer *drools*

    Don't worry Huggymeister, I drool over you more :love:
