States trust me it is a myth.  It is the probably the product of an overactive Irish imagination and love for the tall tale.  Inhabitants of Western Ireland do tend to have darker hair than E. Ireland but the complexion is usually pale and eyes light.  There are exceptions of course. 

http://www.darkfiber.com/blackirish

Many Irish had dark hair etc long before the Spanish Armada in 1588.  Genetic information points to this trait being from the original inhabitants of Ireland around 8000-9000 years ago long before the Celtic invasions.

My wife is Black Irish and can trace her roots back to Spanish Ancestors who ended up in Ireland. Her family tree is researched back to around 660 AD.

She may be of Irish descent that happens to originally come from Spain but the common assertion that dark hair and other traits comes from the Armada is patently false.  Traits are seen in Paleolithic inhabitants and descendants  of Ireland and Wales.  Again look at Tom Jones or Catherine Zeta Jones who are Welsh.  No Armada or Spanish invasion there.

According to surveys done by various Welsh Governmental offices and stuff, the stereotype of people in Wales (according to people in England) is:

"A land of short dark men singing hymns in the shadow of slag heaps"

This was the case in the '50's as well. Probably before then.

Since someone decided to bump the thread, I might as well reply. If something isn't filled in, go ahead and bother me privately about it if you're that curious.

Age: 17
Gender: Nope. Ask privately.

Religion: Agnostic/Pagan/Christian, not sure which.
Height: I don't know... talk to me privately about it. I am very short though.

Person you most admire: Maybe my mother. I know who else for sure though... but I'm not going to mention. Wink

Your other interests: Mathematics, literature, philosophy, physics, tutoring, photography, my pet rabbits, web design (well maybe not), being a wiseass, etc.

It's funny that you won't state your gender.  I've always assumed you're a guy, but I could be wrong.

Being a wiseass is one of your interests?  I like you already. Smiley
