* ''Series/{{Copper}}'': JustifiedTrope since it takes place in 1864. The rank-and-file police officers shown are first generation immigrants who were born in Ireland. The police officer protagonists are named Corcoran, Maguire and O'Brien. Corcoran even lampshades the fact that their captain is as Irish as they are but the captain's father dropped the 'O' from O'Sullivan when they arrived in America.

* ''Series/{{Psych}}'': AvertedTrope. There is a ''[[InsistentTerminology Detective]]'' O'Hara, but that's her name. Her partner, Lassiter, is Irish, but he doesn't act like this and isn't native to Ireland. It doesn't help that Timothy Omundson, who plays Lassiter, once played an evil leprechaun in a [[Film/TheLuckOfTheIrish Disney film]].

** A brief use of the trope in "A Star Is Born Again": Ned has just gotten a date with movie star Sarah Sloane, but doesn't realize who she is until he sees a movie poster that she's on and exclaims about this in surprise. An Irish cop appears out of nowhere to quip unbelievingly about this, then walks off chuckling and twirling his nightstick.
