* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal, the nation of Hergen is a FantasyCounterpartCulture of Ireland and as can be expected takes all the clichés, including this one, UpToEleven. [[TheLadette Shauna O'Hennigan]], a local variantion on a theme of CatholicSchoolGirlsRule - and her wider family - are typical of the Fighting Irish of the Disc.

This may very slowly be becoming a DiscreditedTrope; while in the 19th century Irish soldiers did indeed make up a disproportionate number of soldiers in the [[UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire British]] and [[UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar American]] armies (and are still allowed to join the British Army) times have moved on even if the stereotype hasn't. [[RealityIsUnrealistic Ironically]], Ireland is one of very few countries to become independent in the 20th century to have ''never'' been in an international war. During UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo it remained neutral and turned down a 1949 offer to join UsefulNotes/{{NATO}}. In fact, the Irish military has a good reputation as peacekeepers. The island also has a low rate of violent crime by international standards.

[[note]]It isn't lost in places like Africa that the Irish are one of very few European countries that never went out creating colonial empires, and were, in fact, colonial subjects themselves until, like many African nations, they won independence from somebody else's Empire. This gives Irish soldiers trust and respect as part of any U.N. peacekeeping forces and helps explain why Irish troops are sought after for U.N. purposes.

* 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]]
-->[[TheStarsAreGoingOut And when the stars go out]],
-->You can hear me shout,
-->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=].
