Back due to not so popular demand, you can now ask even more questions regarding Ireland!

Why is an Irish guy reviving dead threads? Does it have to do with Ireland?
: If you weren't new here, you'd know not to feed me such attention. This is like an orgasm in my brain right now. *hehe, my name is in a title, hehe* (http://www.debate.org...)

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

"The law is there to destroy evil under the constitutional government."
So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

What parts of Ireland should a person absolutely visit before he dies and what parts of Ireland should a person never visit if he wants to live?

Why do you think we care about Ireland?
It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

To go to:

- Dublin (For a few days, not that much to see and do)
- Clare (Historical sites and nature walks if you're into that)
- Giants Causeway

Don't Go:
- Northern Ireland for obvious reasons ;)
[Giants causeway is in NI though. proceed with caution!]
@Mongoose:

Most Americans claim Irish heritage. If they do, they should at least attempt to know stuff about Ireland.

A friend of mine has been to Donegal, where she says her family gave her about 80 euros, simply because they didn't need it, because they barter for everything there.

That's the end of my Irish-related stories.

What part of Donegal? Because it's mostly sparsely populated farmland. Like Western Canada ;)

He's one of my favorite golfers and I was pretty sure that that was the case, but I wasn't sure.

Not sure, but I believe somewhere near the western coast. She said it was a beautiful area, which doesn't match up to Western Canada. XD

I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

This fella hasnt a clue of what you should see in Ireland. What you want to do is hit as many of the middle of nowhere village/town festivals that you can find. Puck Fair being a fine example where a goat is carried down through the town on a big stand and everyone gets twisted and all the pubs are open right through the night. Devil worship at its finest. Thats where your gona see the real Irish culture.

Theres nothing beautiful about Ireland really only thats its green. Like if you want green go to New Zealand, but if you want to meet the friendliest of people in towns where nobody will be left an outsider, Irelands the place for you. And fu*k the cities. All you will find there are fools who have forgotten what it is to be Irish.

And one tip. As iamapanda said most americans visiting Ireland claim to have Irish heritage and thats without a doubt the main reason why Irish people hate Americans. If ye can refrain from being so fascinated by a field or passing smart comments about how much bigger eveything is in American then ye will be alright.

And if a drunk fella comes up to ye and starts giving ye abuse, you do not laugh about how typically Irish that is. That will not go down well. Just dont take the abuse. Give it back.

Unfortunately thats not something I would believe unless your friend was visiting one of the hippy communes dotted around the place.

Paddy Harrington'll kick Rork McIlroy's a$$ any day!

I despise Northern Ireland. My great-grandparents on both sides immigrated from Ireland. They were from Dublin, and a small village near where modern day Cork is. My Grandma is extremely passionate about being Irish and my entire family is full of devout catholics except for me. I'm an atheist.

I don't think it was a hippy commune, this was her family and it was situated in a little, spread-out community in Donegal.

Again he hasnt a clue.

There are a load of places you shouldnt go, like theres a nice few in Limerick. And Dubin is full of scumbags. Corks kinda mellow. Americans wouldnt get any hassle in the north. Its only scumbags ye have to look out for.
