** 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.

* ''Space Precinct'', a "Cops in Space" show made by Creator/GerryAnderson, starred [[strike:Gary Ewing]] Ted Shackleford as veteran former New York cop Patrick Brogan, but the Irish accent came from [[DaChief Captain Podly]], an alien played by an actor with a giant puppet head. Ridiculous stereotypical accent aside, Podly was still a perfectly competent cop and got a few badass moments.
