Why Irish women are so rude and judgemental towards foreign women?

Interesting what you say Paddy O Mac.
I am terrified of Irish women. I have never met anyone so cliquey and biatchy in all my life.

The Irish have had a bloody tough lot, a long road to ho and little gratitude from outsiders, not that they really needed it-:)

Don't cast espursions on them, as they are a nation sustained by their Catholic faith (much like the Poles) and who had been defined in terms of their poverty longer than not.

Rude?? Well, look at their harsh climate and bare resources and you'll soon realize that geography, not only culture, shapes national character too!!!

I can say what I like about Irish women, within reason, being an Irish citizen myself. Thanks.
And I realise this might be hard for you to understand but not all Irish are Catholics! Such a lazy stereotype!

"Lazy" I wouldn't say. While the Irish, even among the Northern Protestants, take perhaps a less strict-constructionist view of the Church than the Italians or the Poles, it HAS nonetheless been the Church which has sustained Ireland over the centuries, for better or for worse (often the latter). Furthermore, the word IS "espursions":-)

Hi I'm an Irish woman and I have best mates from all over. Ya you can get ***** in my country but you can get them every where ...I lived in England and worked and some of the people were so rude but then some were lovely.. I feel bad you had to go through that *****, I'd to go through it myself.. For example there were these two polish womens in where I used to work who were rotten to the core and accused my best mate of sexual assault. Some people in work were saying " oh you can't trust polish" I turned around and said to them that that's bollox I know loads of good sound polish you can't tar anyone with the same brush . The sad truth is the majority of human beings are fecking stupid( not saying I'm clever). Most people are selfish idiots .. If they weren,t then world would not be in such a mess.I hope these ******* you're talking about get what they deserve and I hope you find some good people . Trust me there there and everywhere you just need to be positive and put it to the universe.. X

I am married to an Irish man with four sisters and I find them horrid at times. I actually hate going to Ireland because of their nasty ways. I find that myself and my family really don't enjoy the trip and they always make snide remarks or cause an unnecessary atmosphere. After 14 years married my husband has finally agreed that his sisters are complete cows but obviously I don't want him to call them up on it and have a family argument. We keep our trips to a minimum and I grin nicely and suffer the occasional meetings. I am English and even our children have been left out of things......I try not to let it bother me as I love my husband and refuse to let four ******* interfere in my family life. At times I have felt that im not accepted because im English and also not catholic as the other brothers have married/dated Irish girls.Tbh I have heard them say nasty and bitchy things about my other sister in law (she is Irish but really stunning so I think jealously is the issue there!). Such a horrible way to be as it is really turning me off of Irish people ( not my husband ) and the country. I know your not all the same but I definitely don't feel part of the family.

To the Irish has often been attributed a powerful quick and fierce temper, much compared to a summer storm, full of violent fury at the start, gradually leveling off and displaying an almost disarming calm when all is over As with most, if not all, stereotypes, there is in my experience more than a kernel of truth in such an assertion.

Be careful though not to caricature the Irish! The last thing with which the average well-educated, traveled, middle-class Irish wish to be associated ( as Ireland too, going the way of the Continent is slowly "diversifying") these days is for women to be compared with a feisty, spit fire Maureen O'Hara type right out of 'The Quiet Man' or for men to be (still) viewed as two-fisted drunks and brawlers:-)

Most have yet to recover from Dr. Johnson's entry in his dictionary definition of the potato as "a tub'rous growth, a vegetable eaten principally by pigs and Irish".

Prejudice cuts both ways as well.

I like this quote Lyzko!

It describes a few of my relatives perfectly:)

Unfortunately though, the reputation of the Irish for being, so to speak, all animal instinct while more than lacking in the subtleties of higher intellect and restrained enlightenment, remains in a sense the eternal "Irish curse": damned by ungovernable temperament to be forever lackeys to the colonial English and otherwise beneath the heel of her neighbors.

Like the Germans, and only in the first sense (who've more than their share of Celtic blood) the Irish tend to come across as hardened and cynical, bitter as regards the Catholic Church for keeping them poor for centuries, at the same time almost fatalistic about their lot in life, frequently defined by poverty and hardship.
