If one were to inspect the timeline of Irish inventions and discoveries, one would see a very curious thing. The Irish, of course, are responsible for inventing whiskey, and they did so way back in the 14th century. However, right after this groundbreaking beverage came to be, an odd thing happened - a three-hundred-year-long silence, with nothing new from the Irish whatsoever. Were they so enamored with it that they thought their lives were complete? Well, who are we to know, but what we do know is that these Irish jokes are mainly based on this curious fascination with golden liquids.

Of course, we do not want to say that all Irish folks are drunkards apt for debauchery. However, every country has its fun stereotypes, and they are, most of the time, based on at least a shred of truth. For Italians, such a stereotype would be based on pasta and pizza, for Finnish people on their introverted qualities, and for us Lithuanians, it’s, well, potatoes. And it is all in good fun! The same goes for these Irish jokes - although they do talk a lot about beverages containing alcohol, it doesn’t mean that the Irish are only good for that. They are also great with breeding horses, dancing odd dances, and being open and lovely people all around. 

So, antsy to read these fun jokes? Well then, scroll down below and check them out! Be sure to vote for the best Irish jokes, though, and share this article with your friends!

Three guys – one Irish, one English, and one Scottish – are out walking along the beach together one day. They come across a lantern and a genie pops out of it.
“I will give you each one wish, that's three wishes in total,” says the genie.
The Scottish guy says, “I am a fisherman, my dad's a fisherman, his dad was a fisherman and my son will be one too. I want all the oceans full of fish for all eternity.” So, with a blink of the genie's eye, the oceans were teeming with fish.
The Englishman was amazed, so he said, “I want a wall around England, protecting her, so that no one will get in for all eternity.” Again, with a blink of the genie's eye, there was a huge wall around England.
The Irishman asks, “I'm very curious. Please tell me more about this wall.” The genie explains, “Well, it's about 150 feet high, 50 feet thick, protecting England so that nothing can get in or out.”
The Irishman says, “Fill it up with water.”

I get the sentiment, but England doesn't enter - it is the UK - this makes it harder to decide who to enter and gives more reasons not to vote for us! LOL

One night, Mrs. McMillen answers the door to see her husband’s best friend, Paddy, standing on the doorstep.
“Hello Paddy, but where is my husband? He went with you to the beer factory.”
Paddy shook his head. “Ah Mrs. McMillen, there was a terrible accident at the beer factory. Your husband fell into a vat of Guinness stout and drowned.”
Mrs. McMillen starts crying. “Oh, don't tell me that! Did he at least go quickly?”
Paddy shakes his head. “Not really – he got out three times to pee!”

He says: "Have you been drinking?"

"Just water," says the priest.

The cop replies: "Then why do I smell wine?"

Shamrocks have 3 leaves, clovers can have more or less. Hence, all shamrocks are clovers, but not all clovers are shamrocks. St Patrick used the shamrock to show the three in one- Father, Son and Holy Ghost. https://homeguides.sfgate.com/botany-difference-between-clover-shamrock-plants-81823.html
