Default Luck of the Irish?

I would like to know who was the silly f**k*r that coined that phrase!!!

After invasion by a foreign state, the ethnic cleansing of the native Irish population (mainly Catholic) to allow Protestant settlers take their lands, 1 million dead at the "Great Famine", another 1 million emigrating to America to flee the hunger, bombs, Bloody Sunday, "The Troubles", etc., etc., etc.

What the f**k is lucky about that???

And now to top it all Ireland fail to qualify for the greatest sporting event of 2010, the soccer World Cup in South Africa due to an injustice. Seems par for the course.

Am I pissed Off? Too f**king right I am.

No wonder I suffer from depression.

Guess this video exemplifies how I feel.

Man, calm down, firstly it wasn't really an ethnic cleansing... secondly we lost moe than two million during the famine, the world cup thing, screw it, its not that big a deal, we wouldn't have done well anyways... though I do think some form of action should have been taken against Thierry Henry :)
Its all good though cause we're Irish and have craic and the banter :)

Yep.

Some action should have been taken against Henry.

Guess Derrick Bird missed one worthy target.

action should be taken against lots of cheating players but it rarely is.
