--> '''Seamus''': Martin used to let men provoke him into fighting. He was concerned people would think him a coward if he refused. Thats how he got a bowie knife shoved through his belly in a saloon in Virginia City.

* In the English dub of ''Anime/PonyoOnTheCliffByTheSea'', Fujimoto becomes this courtesy of Creator/LiamNeeson. He's an odd variation on this trope in that he's not a hot-headed hooligan but a cold, crotchety old man. You could say that he is to the FightingIrish trope as Creator/PeterCapaldi's [[Series/DoctorWho Twelfth Doctor]] is to the ViolentGlaswegian trope.

* In ''VideoGame/Fallout4'', the companion Cait is a FieryRedhead with a ScotIreland accent who is inexplicably in 200-years-post-apocalyptic Boston long after intercontinental travel is largely impossible (though given that it's set in Boston, the inexplicable part might be that she's the only character with that accent). She's a successful prize cage fighter who is sadly starting to succumb to [[PsychoSerum Psycho]] addiction. [[spoiler: Helping her get clean without killing herself is her personal quest]].

* The ''Garryowen'' is a song all about drinking and fighting, and fighting and...drinking. And fighting.

* The ''Garryowen'' is a song all about drinking and fighting, and fighting and...drinking. And fighting.[[note]]''Garryowen'' was the regimental march of two cavalry regiments that came to spectacularly bad ends. Both the British Light Brigade and the US Seventh Cavalry had a high proportion of Irish soldiers. Lord Cardigan threw his Light Brigade against the Russian guns at Balaclava with his bands playing this tune. George Armstrong Custer led his men to spectacular defeat at the Big Horn with his musicians, reputedly, playing Garryowen. Incredibly, the theme remains a favourite march for today's successors of both magnificent defeats. [[/note]]
