Irish people tend to be, highly, “sensitive” to criticism.
Some examples include:
- A lot of Irish people have horrific teeth. Things have improved, but you still set a lot of people wandering around with a set of teeth on them that wouldn't look out of place in the movie Deliverance.
- Overweight men in their 30's and 40's still wearing bootcut jeans and looking like they are looking forward to attending the Witnness Music Festival in the year 2000.
- That thing where Irish people go abroad and up the levels of Paddywhackery as they somehow believe it impresses the poor misfortunates who end up in their presence. This reaches its zenith when Ireland qualify for a soccer tournament, and will usually involve sunburn, drunkenness, a man in a fountain, and a desperate need to feel they are liked. Cringe inducing.
- Buying absolutely awful low-end cars on PCP finance.
