    Ignore JP Jones - he's a wind up merchant.

    Names I consider to be very irish would include:-

    Aine
    Brid
    Ciaran
    Declan
    Deirdre
    Eamonn
    Eilis
    Finbar
    Finnoula

    I could go on for ever - but that is just for starters.
    you havent mentioned mine but its less common in england but as irish as what you have mentioned.
    unfortunately i am one of those people who get wound up very easily.

    What - Roxy?

    No, I didn't mention it and would not have as I have never heard of it in Ireland; no offence intended.

    I could make excuses and say I was going through the alphabet and stopped at the letter f - but I would be lying!

    well you're on block now - irritance

    (Original post by roxy potter)
    If the british hadn't interferred in the first place then there wouldn't have been those grievances. in fact now that i think about it what grievances are you referring to?
    not at all - the Irish felt angered by British prosperity - i mean grievances in term of: Protestant domination, economic domination of Britain, Irish Protestand landowning aristocracy, home rule, independence etc....

    I was in Manchester during the bomb - violence should be shunned, and i deplore the way in which the Irish tried to get anything,

    The Irish have always been the underdogs whence compared with their British neighbours which - yes, may be sad, but they would have done exactly the same if it was the other way round

    Oh - OK, sorry.

    I feel like that princess in the fairy story who had to guess the name of Rumpelstilkskin!

    Erm.....it is Orla, or Graine, maybe Mairin or Bridget. Or perhaps Maeve?

    Please don't allow that moron JP to hijack our friendly thread. Why should anyone want to come onto a thread titled Irish users, if they don't have an Irish connection, unless it's to try and cause trouble?

    Ignore him and he'll get fed up and go somewhere else to do his stirring.

    amusing? Because i find the flaws in the 'Irish' and that they are indeed purveyors of great violence - i wonder how they'd feel if we placed a bomb in Dublin
