I recently saw this fun flowchart graphic from the folks at TheIrishStore.com.  I wanted to share it here for your enjoyment (you can click the image to enlarge it a bit, by the way).  Just to head-off any potential gripes about what it means to be Irish, it's clear to me that this is just a fun graphic designed to highlight some of the unique features and cultural aspects of Ireland.  With all the discussion recently here at The Wild Geese about inappropriate stereotypes, it was nice to see that although certain beverages are mentioned, over-indulgence and binge drinking are not promoted herein.

So, in the interest of having a bit of craic with this, how Irish are you according to this flowchart?  :-)

Delightfully humorous graphics, Ryan - for members who don't take themselves too seriously! What happened to the 'craic' I often hear in Irish videos?

Yes, Mr. Sutton ... there may be three or four folks out of the six million on the island who would agree with you.  Hopefully you can track them down on your next trip here and the five of you can get together for a protest.

Ruth ... thank you for the comment.  I agree wholeheartedly with what you've said.

Haha, good point, DJ!

How can anyone find this demeaning?  Those who did must answer "no" to the question "Can you take a slagging?"  One of the best things about the Irish character is that we can take a ribbing with a smile and give back better than we got.

That's the spirit, Jane.
