The O'Meara Folklore: Black Irish: Etymological Consensus? (149* d) RE: Folklore: Black Irish: Etymological Consensus? 05 Dec 03


My father and grandfather and grandmother were black-haired blue-eyed folk, and were called Black Irish by the St.Paul MN Irish community. (Grandfather came over from Tipperary). My mother was ginger-haired Norwegian/Irish. I turned out to be stereotypicaly red haired, Green eyed, and fishbelly white skinned.

Um...what were we talking about again now?

O'Meara
