•“The Irish facilitate an open and fluid approach between people in public and private space, personal space is small and it is not uncommon for Irish people to show displays of affection in public. Thus it is not looked down upon . The Irish are known for their friendliness and adopt a first name basis for business and profession, this eliminates division of class or status.” (worldcultures.com) What makes Irish culture so unique?

• The people of Ireland vote, though often their vote is based off of the knowledge of the politician. Concequently the way they vote is based more upon a politicians character more than their political views. For this reason elected officials are often past sports heroes, publicans, and ex military.
•Politicians allow their constituents to go in and talk without an appointment further reflecting the mindset of the Irish, being that government has a face behind it giving a personal touch further supporting the image of a laid back ireland. Irish Government •Irish Family systems are rather traditional in comparison to American families. Though equality laws are put in place, the men are often still the ones to work.
