|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.
