* The Music/{{Horslips}}, in their retelling of Irish primal legend ''The Tain'', assert that the one thing which will persist past the end of all other things is the Irish tendency to violence and bloodshed. [[note]]as they are an Irish band, this is NWordPrivileges: an assertion like this coming from anybody who isn't Irish would, of course, be a racist prejudice and reinforcing a stereotype...[[/note]]

-->Two heads are better than one, a hundred heads are so much better than none!
''The Tain'' is a retelling of the great primal war between the kingdoms of Ireland; the song from which the above lines are taken is called ''Dearg Dhu'', celebrating the deeds of the great fighting warrior and hero [=Cu Chullain=].

* Even though Creator/LiamNeeson rarely plays hot-headed hooligans (except when parodying {{Oireland}} stereotypes -- see his cameos on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''), he virtually always plays a {{badass}} of some stripe. Famous Neeson characters include Qui-Gon Jinn in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', Bryan Mills in ''Film/{{Taken}}'', and Aslan in ''Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia''. He also played Good Cop/Bad Cop in ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'', in which he alternated between a cheerful OfficerOHara-type (Good Cop) and a ruthless sadist who's closer to this trope (Bad Cop).
