* 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).

This can be [[Administrivia/TropesAreFlexible played many ways]]. A good-natured BoisterousBruiser who favors his fists is typical of many recent examples; boxing has a long history in Ireland and among Irish-Americans. Negative portrayals are more common the farther back you go. More thuggish examples will often carry a [[CarryABigStick shillelagh]], a traditional knobby cudgel that has become a symbol of Irish culture as well as its violence. Even darker examples might be remorseless {{Blood Knight}}s, tyrannical bullies, or terrorist psychopaths. If a Fighting Irishman is or was in the [[UsefulNotes/TheTroubles Irish Republican Army]] expect him to have at least a bit of the MadBomber thrown in.

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. In recent years, Irish boxers have had success at the UsefulNotes/OlympicGames.

* Ireland's NationalAnthem "Amhrán na bhFiann"/"A Soldier's Song". Now, to be fair, a ''lot'' of national anthems are partially or entirely about how incredibly good the country in question is at war. Ireland's is still in the "entirely" category, being about how much Irish people fight and that's it.
