Generally you are not ridiculed by the Irish if you sing irish songs.

People who are pretending to be Irish by presenting all the cliches are making a fool out of themselves.That`s what the song is about. And of course faux Irish Pubs that are sold all over the world - often to people who have no connection whatsoeverto Ireland (and especially no knowledge about it).

Best wishes
