My family has always referred to the black Irish as those with fair skin and
black hair. I'm not sure if eyes were blue or dark, or if it mattered.
Pierce Brosnan might be one, I think?
But (being just a little north of your own Sacramento), I'm a long way from
Ireland. Our members there might tell you more. . . ?
What does the term mean to you?
