Take a Close Look at Everything Irish

By: Sheldon Jackson

Every one of us has some or the other unique quality about ourselves. It is these unique qualities which distinguish us from others. More often these individual qualities come together to represent an entire city or nation. Say for instance, the Canadians are known for their excellence in playing hockey; the Americans are famous for their extraordinary talent of filmmaking, and the Australians are known for their love for adventure. You would mostly find one towering characteristic in the nationals of each country which remains unparalleled by all others. A discussion about the distinctive talents of countries across the world remains incomplete without the mention of Ireland. This is one such country which shows talents in almost every aspect of life.


Irish people are naturally gifted with the talent of storytelling. They are very good at the art of make-believe. Turn the pages of Irish literature and you would be lost in their stories. They are the priceless gems of theliterary world. It would not be wrong to say that literature as a whole would have missed an important part of its existence without the contribution of the Irish. Seems like the Irish know how to play around with feelings of love, pain and happiness in their lore. Writers like Oscar Wilde and W. B. Yeats are still remembered worldwide for their literary contributions.


The Irish are considered to be very sweet by nature. They seem to derive this sweetness from the dominance of honey in their lives or rather cuisine. The Irish cuisine is a healthy mixture of meats, fruits and dairy products. In the name of vegetables, you can clearly see the supremacy of potatoes in all Irish dishes. Almost every country serves the black Irish coffee famous for its strong and bitter taste. The Irish don't bother about concepts like healthy when it comes to their food, eating lavishly seems to be the motto of their lives.


The Irish believe in relations, both of the blood and of the heart. They maintain them too. Family get-togethers are an integral part of every house in Ireland.Love seems to be deeply ingrained in the veins of the Irish; and no other art form allows you to express your love better than dance and music.No wonder the Irish are ardent lovers of music and dance. Irrespective of the influences from other cultures, the Irish refuse to let go of their traditional music and dance. The traditional Irish step dancing is very famous all across the world till today.


The Irish have excellent communication skills. They generally prefer to colour their conversations with elements of humour and wit. They believe in expressing themselves with a touch of instant light-hearted humour, and everyone is expected not to take these insults on a personal level. Joking and pulling each other's leg is a common ingredient of Irish conversations.

Be it food, music, dance or literature; everything Irish has a beauty of its own. They make you feel comfortable and at home, no doubt almost all of us have some or the other Irish influence in our lives.
