* In a meta sense, ''Film/TheUntouchables'', where SeanConnery plays an Irish cop using his real accent, and it's never addressed. This is, however, [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent rather common for Connery]].

Added DiffLines:

* Many Irish folksongs and tunes are popular standards with Scottish groups, and vice versa. There are also crossover songs such as ''Mo Ghile Mear'', an Irish lament for Bonnie Prince Charlie, or ''The Green and the Blue'', a Scottish song about Irish emigration to Scotland. This doesn't even take into account Canadian-Maritime and Australian folk music, both of which take strong cues from Scottish and Irish immigrants. For example, ''Wild Colonial Boy'', about an Australian outlaw, is better known in Ireland and may have been written there (based on an Australian song about the Irish-born Jack Donahoe), while the Canadian fiddle tune ''St. Anne's Reel'' and an associated song are well-known in Ireland.

* Inverted in ''Theatre/LegallyBlonde: The Musical'', in the song "Ireland". Paulette dreams of meeting an Irish man and living in Ireland, and confuses Scottish and Irish culture-which Elle (and the audience) find funny.
** Particularly funny with the London West End version. At one time Elle was portrayed by an Irish actress, future [[Music/CelticWoman Celtic Woman]] Susan [=McFadden=].

* The [[HornyDevils succubus]] Morrigan Aensland of ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' fame was discovered as an infant by her adoptive father Belial in Scotland and her D.O.B. ([[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld 1678 A.D.]]) coincides with the first appearance of a succubus in Scotland, but [[MeaningfulName her name]] and some of [[OrgasmicCombat her]] [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence character]] [[SexIsViolence quirks]] are taken from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morr%C3%ADgan a deity in Irish mythology.]] With the exception of the 90s cartoon, the dub of the ''Night Warriors''/''Vampire Hunter'' OVA, and the recent ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', her English voice actresses also tend to give Morrigan an UsefulNotes/{{American accent|s}}, [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent not a Scottish one]]. [[SplitAtBirth By a technicality]], this would make her [[CloningBlues "younger sister"]] Lilith also qualify for this trope.

* ''[[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 TF2's]]'' first issue of ''Ring of Fired!'' reveals the Scottish Demoman's full name is Tavish Finnegan [=DeGroot=]. While Tavish is definitely Scottish, Finnegan is decidedly Irish. Then again, his family name is ''Dutch''.

* VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles features a recruitable sniper with the very Irish name Catherine O'Hara. While it's never stated that she's from the game's alternate universe versions of Ireland or Scotland, her accent veers dramatically between the two whenever she speaks.

* A bit of commentary in ''Wrestling/WWESmackdown vs. Raw 2009'' has something to this effect - Coach refers to the oh-so-very Irish Finlay as English. When called on it by way of Michael Cole listing all of the extremely Irish things about him, Coach indicates that he knows the difference between English and ''Scottish''.

* Creator/{{NPR}}'s long running show [[http://thistleradio.com/ The Thistle and Shamrock]] showcases music from Ireland and Scotland, taking its name from the two nations' symbols. To the untrained ear (i.e.: most people) there is no discernible difference between the two styles. Host Fiona Ritchie has a lovely authentic accent, as well.

* Even in ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}'' Scotty's accent tended to wander not just through every region of Scotland, but across the Irish Sea too. {{Lampshaded}} by several Scottish stand-up comedians over the years who always joke about wondering which part of Ireland Scotty was from. This was apparently due to ExecutiveMeddling; James Doohan actually could do several regional Scottish accents, but it was feared they would be incomprehensible to American audiences.

* In ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', a gang prepares to rob Lex Luthor as their final heist because their ability to phase through solid objects is fading. One of the crooks makes a crack about how they'd be able to build a money silo like "that [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Irish duck]]" and is corrected (since Scrooge is in fact Scottish) by one of the other crooks with a surprisingly good rendition of both accents.
