Irish people are thought of a certain way around the world. We all like to think that we are seen as great craic, fun to be around and easy going in general.
Sure don't people say that to us all the time?
Well a quick look through stock images depicting the Irish tells you a very different story. We spend our days trawling images to use in stories and what you see is a very stereotyped vision of the Irish.
Put simply we fight, drink green beer, fall asleep and then drink some more green beer when we awake.
Have a look for yourselves...
