"The Irish are clean smart,funny ,wonderful writers,teachers,cooks and have the best humor.They make the best friends ,employers,employees,lovers etc.Italians make alots of pasta ,get fat,make fools out of their sons beat their wifes and gamble.So I guess Irish are better.Just saying.Oh and Italian women are loose and gross."

...The Irish in Utica are slow,dull, stupid, lazy drunks.
But their wives, daughters and sisters can suck the paint off a pool cue. I wouldn't bang one without 3 rubbers, though.

Italians are far superior to Irish in a collection of areas.
Italians have excellent food that is appreciated worldwide and contributes to Continental Cuisine.
Irish food is bland, tasteless and lacks any originality. What variants of a potato can you create? Really?
Italians have the most sought after sports cars that have rivaled any Car manufacterer in history.
Irish never made or built cars. They get hand-me downs from Britain.
Italians have excelled in science, art, mathematics and literature: Galileo, DaVinci, Fibonacci, Michelangelo, Cicero, etc.
Italians have exotic women with a wide combination of physical traits and skin tones.
Irish women are usually very pale, plain featured, with a washed out complexion.

Italians are far superior in many facets. If anyone ascribes Italians to the mafia or organized crime, I have a message for you. Mafia was a Hollywood character device used to vilify Italians. In reality less than .3% of the Italian population was involved in some mob activity. That only occured in Sicily. anyone who correlates Italian people to the mob are ignorant fools who watch too much TV and movies. That is pure fiction!

im from montreal, canada. as an italian canadian i can honestly say that i have seen a lot of irish-italian marriages, here in montreal and especially in boston and surroundings. in a marriage it is when one thinks they are better than the other that the marriage does not work as instead of working in harmony the partners compete against each other with a predictable outcome.

italians and irish love to go at it but can be the best of friends, and that is the way i like it.

Do your italian history, it speaks volumns of a disorganized mixed ethnic groups of peoples. The only organized region is northern italy which the austrians ruled and built up.

Both have some good and some bad but the Irish win because as a rule they are nicer,smarter and much cleaner.When they get together The Irish bring out the best in the Italians everytime so an Italian married to an Irish person is great.

I'm neither Irish or Italian....obviously! But what is the purpose of this question? Other than to cause tension between the Italian & Irish.

Italian Mom. Irish Dad. So much bs about Irish v Iti! Both inter-marry more than any other. All this Mafia/IRA bs! It's Like Scorsese said "most of my movies woulda been about the Irish had they been better looking". As for the crackers-leave them to Jesus. Why not be prouder of being Irish or Italian. Two of the worlds most ancient cultures. I'm so impressed with all this lucky charm American commentary. One of the reasons the rest of the world think you are idiots! Keep proving it.

I'm half Irish and half Italian. Here's some of what I've gathered, both from family experience and from cultural experience:

It's true that the Italians have a lot to offer. Great food. Historically, they've shown great sculpture and architecture. I suppose some would say clothing and cars, but I can't afford them, so I wouldn't know.

I love and am proud of my Irish heritage. It's my opinion that the Irish are more loyal. Speaking from family experience alone, the Irish side of my family has a lot of love to go around, whereas the Italian side of my family have shown to be selfish and greedy.

That's not to say that every family doesn't have love, but if I had a choice, I'd want an Irishman at my side.

Both irish and italian have their share of drinking, anyone can drink. us italians have big noses thats most definately sure! We care for anyone that returns the favor, if one of our relatives comes to our house we'll bug the shit out of them to make something to eat. i can admit that my italian family takes everything seriously, we dont like being joked with yet we can joke around with other people its just some hipocritical shit like that. but i have irish friends and i gotta admit theyre more athletic and better fighters. but of course im comparing apples to oranges here. We're all american, are we not?
