Lots of comments Please!!!!
Ireland's culture today can best be described as "Brit-Pop"
That's what I voted
There's two kinds: Irish culture and the kind that's for sale.
What sticks in my mind were all those "Oiie-rish" people crying over Dianna, and the Union Jack flown at 1/2 mast .
You should have added BIG-Broyther to the Brit Popular Vote.
I wanted to Vote for Atari Jag
Sometimes I think Ireland has no culture
Other times I think it's cities are very like Cardiff/Swansea in Wales
irish youth culture:
ppl who love Louis Walsh and all that rolls out of his shed ("cos its good music and u can't argue with that..." - yeah, sure).
ppl who love anything but..
ppl who know what pubs are for.. - ppl who don't...
the good and the fuKin bad(and the ugly)
ppl wot know wot life is for....ppl who don't.
those are my ideas - didn't vote cos we aren't really like another country - thats what makes them foreign and us not.
I thinks its a cross between Germanic and brit.
Tbh we're alot like brit-pop, but the most appealing seems to be Canadian.
I voted brit just because the food in the other ones are ****e naw I would say brit but without the spicegirls as they are slags
It can be summed up in one word, unfortunately the censor won't allow me use that word.
Good Point: Unlike americans, Irish people know themselves, they have a strong identity, family, and they know where they come from a have knowledge of their county and province's history, lifestyle...
Bad Point: Irish people have no culture whatsoever except for a few people in Kerry, Donegal,Conemara still having the ability to speak the Native language, playing Reels , Hornpipes, or able to dance. Irish culture & customs are dead.
Irish culture today is either American or British, but mainly British.
I think Australians & Canadians have a stronger culture than theIrish, the Australians don't watch Liverpool or Leeds United everyday, they don't talk about Brookside at work, and they don't hang around fish n chip shops.
Take the Australians for instance.They play their own sports ( Rugby, Aussie Rules..) they watch their own TV channels, and
they have their own literature and lifestyle.
This is the most stupid topic ever....
And BTW I go for Germanic...
Most Popular Sport: Not Hurling...The most flags, jerseys, bought....games watched are English Premiership Soccer Matches.
Most popular Irish literature in school/university:Not it's not Bram Stoker or James Joyce...it's Dickens, Beckett an Irish man that rejected his Irish roots, Shakesphere
Best Tv: Highest TV ratings in Ireland come from Eastenders and Corination Street figures
Pubs Nightlife and Beer: Pubs and Nightclubs close at almost the same time as in England. Irish people drink the same as the English...Larger and not German Beer, German beer actually tatses good. However Irish drink more Stout and Ale than the English.
Frequently Read Material: happens to be the Star the mirror and the Sun....All British Tabloids
Most Popular Music: Not the Dubliners or Christy Moore... It's Brit POP
Best Rugby Team: The British Lions mostly English Rugby players which for some strange reason they call them the Irish lions in Ireland. But I suppose this some from the "adopted Irish syndrome" just like the Oasis Brothers.
Ireland has no Culture
navel contemplating goth kids - straight from the 'burbs of the good old us of a.
tracksuite wearing, overly aggressive spanners - council estates in england.
d4 daddy's girls and rugby playing repressed homosexuals - middle england throwbacks.
