Chonaic mé cúpla dóibh mé fhéin timpeall an suíomh.
Níll aithne agam uirthi, an mainicín í? Tá daoine ann atá mé ag iarradh postáil fúthu ach I ndárire ní dhearna said aon rud chomh
dona sin fós agus ceapaim nach bhfuil sé féaráilte daoine a chuir sa tóir at duine nach bhfuil ach neamhdhíobhálach.

I haven't checked in with her for a while, but jaysus the cringe is mighty with that one.
Kind of ot, but I was shooping pt a while ago and she actually looks super Irish without her regal chin. She looks like every derbhla and aoibhean from down the country I've ever met.
a n o n . i used to gossip up a storm about that retard on other forums. I REALLY think she's deserving of a post here. her attitude makes me want to throw up.
Her or Leighanna Rose Walsh
(i share this name, the only people i've ever met with the same with me have been either a cow or a knacker, unreal lad)
in regard to this thread and an irish thread in general is OP opposed to us using the aul Béarla in here? there's a load of people we could take the piss out of but it wouldn't fit in any other threads.
cian twomey/ his snot faced gf
everyone and their mother who's a fucking ~InGloT prO~ now
OP here, yeah I'm 100% fine with the Béarla (actually I read the stickied post wrong and assumed we had to post in our own languages lol but would appreciate the odd banter as Gaeilge too if anyone wants to say something super secret that we don't want the duuurty foridners to understand ;))
Leighanna has a thread in /snow/ btw. Fully support Amy King being discussed here since I don't think there's enough dirt on her to start a whole thread.

Three kids and SIX dogs. She's been doing the youtube thing since she was 22 so it's unlikely she's ever had to work in the real world. I'd say she makes a lot of money from Americans and people from the UK curious about how Irish people live (cringe that she's what they think we're like though). I can't come up with another explanation as to why she rakes in views because she's got the personality of cardboard. I quite like watching vlogs when the people filming them have interesting lives or at least are good at entertaining their audience but her vlogs, I shit you not, are just the life of an ordinary family (filming the kids going to the crèche, hospital trips, going to relatives houses, assembling furniture, supermarket trips, kids screaming in the background as she attempts to tell the camera what meals they ate that day). Especially considering neither off them work and just sit around the house all day.
There's nothing about that family that doesn't irritate me. From their very forced "posh" accents to how Anna always looks irritated by her really immature, over-excited husband. Even how they moved to England in a desperate attempt to stay relevant and collab with the much younger "Zoella". Makes me laugh now every time I hear the kids speak with those horrible little Peppa Pig accents, they've traded the one thing that made them even slightly unique (being Irish) for a few babysitting sessions with someone who I only know from having a soap collection in Penneys. Also Anna's weird obsession with Italy (it's like she's a weeb for Italy), she gave all her kids really ugly names just so they would sound Italian (Emilia Tommasina Saccone-Joly, Eduardo Jonathan Saccone-Joly and Alessia Francesca Saccone-Joly…my heart goes out to their future classmates) and then the dogs (Albi, Sina, Theo, Nivea, Bianca, Nuvola).
They just remind me of a couple of private school kids who never grew out of their trying to seem "posh" phase.
>>371>horrible little Peppa Pig accents
kek>they've traded the one thing that made them even slightly unique
don't see how it'd make them unique though, there's nothing particularly remarkable about Ireland aside from the accent(s), and even that's mostly yanks creaming themselves. Most people not from North America just see it as being a weird-sounding Brit anyway.>she gave all her kids really ugly names just so they would sound Italian
Wait I thought it was because her husband was Italian? Is he? If not that'd be really cringey, though I think Alessia sounds nice (and Francesca, but not double barreled like that).>>376
Hahaha good god
Yeah there is nothing particularly interesting about us but Irish yt channels (Facts, Clisare, Jackseptic eye, Melanie Murphy etc.) rake in views despite them not being very interesting or unique people (or at least by yt standards) and the only explanation I can come up with is that it's Americans discovering them through shit like IrishCentral "top ten youtubers from the emerald isle you're probably related to!"
Nah he's not Italian, he was born and raised in Dublin. It's Anna's grandfather that's Italian (her surname is Saccone like) but like she doesn't speak a word of Italian and barely goes there…why bother naming your kids obscure Italian names just to move to England where their classmates will struggle to pronounce them? Did they originally plan to move to Italy? They're pretty by themselves but make awful mouthful when combined. Idk why they didn't agree on just taking her surname if they were going to give them long Italian names anyway.>>377
omfg I'm crying.
>>387>a reverse muh heritage
That's actually hilarious>>393
I… don't get this family. What a vile man.

What is it with yanks and their sick boner for everything Irish? I kinda get France, Italy etc because even here people go there when they want to look posh and cultured. But why Ireland? I'm willing to bet they've as much English/German heritage as they do Irish, but you don't see them buying useless Made in Germany trinkets online and flying to Bavaria to 'see where they came from' nearly as often.
I kind of get it because Irish people are so proud and they probably passed that on for generations but that's…literally all they passed on. "Irish-Americans" don't speak Irish, they don't eat Irish food, they can't play any Irish instruments (and no, "Flogging Molly" does not count as taking an interest in "Irish" music), they don't use any Irish phrases or mannerisms, they don't keep up to date with Irish media or politics and they've turned Irish dancing into some digesting beauty pageant hybrid.
Americans just don't understand how monocultural their country is. If they want to take an interest in their "roots" (not that any Europeans would give a shit if their parent or grandparents or in the case of americans, great-greatgrandparents were from another country) they could learn some Irish trad music, support Irish people living in America by taking Gaeilge lessons, set up a pop-up Gaeltacht, watch GAA…anything other than reducing our culture to some silly theme park-esque fantasy.
In fact the Black Irish of the Caribbean have preserved Irish culture abroad, which would probably piss a lot of racist American "Irish" off to know lol.
I almost got triggered
until I read the rest of that sentence. Apparently 'Black Irish' is a thing in America used to describe people like Colin Farrell and Gráinne Seoige who… aren't ginger and blue-eyed enough to fit their standards of Irishness, I suppose?
Their whole obsession is so cartoony like
The "black Irish" is a genuine term with relation to those of Spanish/Mediterranean descent and those who aren't (the minority of the country being the latter).
And we're only white after the 19th century came along, but however we're still "niggers" to a lot of folks out there regardless. Ah sure history's fun though.
I will admit some American girl telling me her and her da believed all the Irish were gingers with blue eyes so there's definitely a romanticising factor thrown in for some of it.
Needless to say I shattered her rose tinted glasses for her.
GRM as freagra a thabhairt! Níll aon bainne ag baint le Amy i ndáiríre (go bhfios dom!). Ach ceapaim fhéin go bhfuil sí greannmhar ar aon nós. Tá Natasha mar an gcéanna. Tá Amy ag múineadh sa tSeapáin anios agus tá náire agam dí ag smaoineamh faoi cén saigheas eadaí nó cosplay a chaitfeadh amach gach lá. Ugh.
Tá sé suimiúil cé chomh beag is atá an pobal anseo (an pobal a théann go dtí na conventions). De gnáth, bainim taitneamh as Toxic Tears agus Drew Shields a leanúint. Ní daoine úfásasacha iad ach cuireann siad a s/shaol go léir ar líne dúinn. Tá droch dhearcadh ag TT agus tá aithne ag daoine thar lear uirthi mar a fheicimíd anseo ar lolcow. Níllim ag rá go bhfuil an fuath tuillte acu ach tá sé deacair gan iad a leanúint, yknow?

Tá líon mhór cosplayers in Éirinn náireach, dar liomsa. Níl an fíor ainm agam don bean seo, ach War Panda is é an t-ainm ar a leathanach FB.
Bhí sí ar an teilifís gléasta mar "edgy steampunk pikachu". Náire náire náire.
Seo an t-aon píosa fíor-bhainne atá agam ar Amy, nuair a bhí sí ar TV3 ag labhairt cac agus ag féachaint mar an gcéanna. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9G5IeG3gjBE
Ta a lan Bainne ar War panda
I'm not gud enough in Irish to say it all but she's quite the piece of work, asides from being ghastly ugly she's also got the biggest ego I have ever encountered in cosplay she runs down anyone in cosplay who is mildly popular or attractive and is none to report pictures of sexy girls she knows. She's extremely into herself and thinks she's stunning and is obsessed with being cosfamous
I guessed as much. I have a lot of friends who fawn over her and might know her irl (everyone eventually "knows" each other in the con scene) but I just get a really weird feeling about her.
She's a cosplay guest at JCon next month, I guess she's getting her foot in the door? I've never seen her do anime cosplay though, it all just gets lumped together now.
Yep! I'm at it right now. Came just to see Super Eyepatch Wolf.
I don't cosplay or anything so I can't give any little detail about who I might be like people do on /cgl/ lol.
Beidh ceann eile an bhlian seo chugainn ach níor bhain mé taitneamh as an ceann seo, caithfidh mé a rá. Bhí sé ró-chostasach don méid a bhí ann, "rock paper scissors" agus "q&as" le cosplayers. Ugh. Tá a fhíos agam nach raibh sé ach sa chéad bhlian ach come on bhí beagánín níos mó iarracht ag taisteal. Chuala mé nach mbeidh an fear a d'eagraigh é ann an bhliain seo chugainn?
Chuaigh mé chun Super Eyepatch Wolf a fheiscint ach bhí mé ró-cúthalach caint leis tar éis an panel :'(
Is deas é scríobh anseo leis an réamheolas nach mbeidh éinne as na tíortha eile in ann é a chuir isteach i Google Translate (mar ní obríonn sé don Ghaeilge haha) :)
There are definitely more. Irish people are such gossips by nature. I know myself that I have a personal lolcow I'd love to post about but I'm sure seeing himself here would cause him to freak out and not sure I trust people not to cow-tip. I wish we had our own little catalog of Irish cows and their social media or maybe a private chat for discussing them. It's such a small island, I know that being noticed internationally would cause a lot of small cows to freak out. The benefit of us being small though, is that you're guaranteed to meet these cows at some point during your life and see them out in the wild.
I love how TT is known internationally now though lmao.

Nollaig Shona, a dhuine anaithnid!
I just don't understand this girl at all. She does the exact same makeup for every cosplay, she hasn't improved at all since the first time I saw pictures of her years and YEARS ago, how does she never get better? I know I've seen a lot of people say she's haggard but having seen her irl she's honestly pretty enough, she just does absolutely nothing to flatter her face shape or height.
And jesus, we can't even get any milk from her because she's in glorious nippon.

Went looking to see if she had tumblr, lo and behold.
Is it weird that I feel like she sent these anons to herself? There's just a weird tone (even ignoring that anyone would genuinely think she's a great cosplayer outside her friend group)
I either think she's sending them to herself or she's being trolled. But they're always weirdly sexual and she actually responds to the even though you can ignore them and nobody will see them.
So yeah, I think she sends them to herself and then pretends like it's really creepy or weird but she'd secretly love for people to ask her sexual questions or compliment her like that.
From the dodgy Rei "photoshoots" she's done I wouldn't be surprised.
I genuinely can't tell if she's got something wrong with her though, and I don't even mean that in a nasty way. She just doesn't seem the full shilling.
Probably a bit creepy, but I'd love to just do her hair and makeup and see how she'd look with something to flatter her. She seems to have no idea what shape her face is, how makeup works, how tall she is, and it's pretty unfortunate.
Ní dóigh liom é. Supposed to be an anime con but there was nothing anime related last year. They need to focus and stop trying to pander to ever "geek" interest at once. All these cons trying to lump together anime, comics, gaming, and pop culture geek stuff are watering down the con experience.
Speaking of trying to have fingers in ever pie, Dublin Comic Con is running an "anime edition". I have a weird feeling about it.
