* Wrinkly auld farmers greet travellers with a hearty, "Top o' the moornin' to ye." While some stereotypes have some merit, this has absolutely none. No Irish person ever says "top o' the mornin'". EVER. Unless they're ridiculing those who think they do. Or if they're LetsPlay/JackSepticEye.

* Played jaw-droppingly straight in the AmyAdams romcom ''Film/LeapYear'' - superstitious elderly rural locals spouting cliches, bar brawls, tiny villages, cattle-blocked roads, ceilí bands, claddagh rings... it's impossible to ''dislike'' a film with AmyAdams in the lead role but you'd never believe it was made in 2009. (It also has an ''imaginative'' approach to Irish geography - seemingly [[ArtisticLicenseGeography the fastest way to reach Dublin by boat from Wales is via Cork.]])

* Creator/WilliamShakespeare and his fellow Elizabethan dramatists were among the first to record the Oirish stereotype in literature, albeit in a markedly less affectionate form than its modern equivalent. Shakespeare describes the Irish as "rough, rug-headed kernes" with "bloudy devilish hand[s]". His notorious Oirish character, MacMorris from ''Literature/HenryV'', declares, "Of my nation! What ish my nation? Ish a villain, and a bastard, and a knave, and a rascal. What ish my nation? Who talks of my nation?" Presumably the Oirish stereotype then was that all Irish spoke like Creator/SeanConnery. This unflattering depiction is largely due to the fact that England was facing numerous uprisings from the native Irish population, something they obviously ensured would [[UsefulNotes/OliverCromwell never]], [[HanoverStuartWars ever]], [[UsefulNotes/TheIrishRevolution ever]], ''[[TheTroubles ever]]'' happen again.
