15 'Irish' things for sale on Etsy that will make all Irish people cringe

As Irish as saying ‘Top o’ the morning.’ (Not very Irish at all.)

1. This auld lad cap for your tiny baby

I hand crocheted this Irish Donegal cap baby hat to fit newborn infant baby boys. It will fit to approximately 2 weeks of age.

2. A cushion with an image of a squirrel holding a shamrock

Ah yes, that famous symbol of Irish culture.

This throw pillow features a portrait of my good friend Shamus O’Squirrel holding his lucky three-leaf clover as he celebrates St. Paddy’s Day.

3. Ho, ho, ho. It’s like reading my diary.

4. What’s this, you ask? Why it’s a shamrock made from ‘real Irish bog’

5. Because nothing says Irish like a haggard looking Garfield half-heartedly holding a sign that says “Blarney”

Oh doesn’t it make your heart swell with pride?

What Irish stereotypes?

8. A t-shirt that reads, ‘Namastay at the pub and drink’

I think Yeats wrote that one.

12. This honestly reads like a bad improvised outtake from The Sopranos

“Yeah that’s a bit corny, let’s try it again.”

Oh God. Is this what the world thinks of us?
