* TheAlcoholic: A subversion. He does drink, and fairly often, but it seems to be more of a social thing than any sort of addiction, and he's never really drunk. [[NeverGetsDrunk Although that could just mean that he's so used to liquor by now that he holds it fairly well since, according to him, he can drink 15 pints in one sitting.]]

* FinishingMove: The FinishingMove:
** In his indy/FCW days, he used the Celtic Slam (Death Valley driver), the Fiery Red Hand (a falling leg trap chokeslam, ultimately changed to an exploder suplex dropped into a side slam) and the Irish Curse (side slam backbreaker), the last of which remained in his moveset as a signature move. He would also use a vertical suplex slam in minor opponents.
** Upon debuting in WWE in 2009, he dropped all the mentioned and instead adopted the
Brogue Kick, kick (bicycle kick) and the Celtic Cross (a running crucifix powerbomb), also called High Cross Powerbomb and or Pale Justice.
** In 2012, he changed the Celtic Cross for the
White Noise (Over The Shoulder Back (an over the shoulder back to Belly piledriver).

'''Stephen Farrelly''' (born 28 January 1978) is an Irish {{professional wrestl|ing}}er. After having worked as a bodyguard, he took up the sport of professional wrestling after training with Cliff Compton, Tank Toland and Cindy Rogers in Larry Sharpe's Monster Factory wrestling school in April 2002, at Wrestling/BretHart's suggestion. He received an injury early on but returned two years later, debuting in Irish Whip Wrestling as '''Galldubh''' before returning to the name he was better known for, '''Sheamus O'Shaunessy'''. His exploits here lead to booking with larger promotions, including one affiliated with the Global Professional Wrestling Alliance in Austria. From there, Sheamus would eventually earn a developmental deal with the largest pro wrestling promotion left in the world, Wrestling/{{WWE}}.

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuitySnarl: At one point Wrestling/{{Christian}} wanted a match against him (before the "One More Match" gag) and joked to him that that they were both born without last names as part of a reason why it should happen. Wikipedia research or prior exposure to both Sheamus and Christian reveals that their characters both had last names for years before making it to TV.

** Talks a big game about how much of a {{Badass}} he is, and with his LightningBruiser style he certainly ''could'' live up to his own hype. However, as a heel, he has proven himself a cringing coward when pitted against an equal opponent. As a face, he averts it; at the beginning of his face turn he tanked the Punt of Doom, stood up to Mark Henry when no one else would and made the big man back off. And then ''breaking out of the Khali Vicegrip!'' Through sheer brute force! Heck, Mark Henry keeps ''running away from him!'' Originally, it was just because he had a steel chair, but now just Sheamus coming is enough to send Mark running for the locker room!

* BeardOfEvil: After he dispensed with the braids, his beard in 2016 as a heel is much thicker and wilder than it was at any point during his face run.



* LightIsNotGood: His recent (2015- ) heel run entrance, which features religious imagery on the Titantron video and starts with a tremendous burst of white light that renders his already pale form virtually fluorescent.



* SpikyHair: And has only ever appeared on TV once without it spiked (and that was because his hat was over it). UpToEleven when he returned in 2015 sporting a ginger mohawk about three inches high.

By 2016, the spikes have grown to [[AnimeHair near absurdity.]] One can only speculate as to the amount of product required to maintain the hairstyle.
