Some Irish Humor


In Ramble and Roar, the first book of my Roaring Twenties Series, I explore the Irish mob. I spent months researching the mob, Irish culture, and Irish vocabulary. And I found the Irish humor to be delightful!

Today, I am sharing a few Irish jokes with you:

Mrs. Feeney shouted from the kitchen, “Is that you I hear spittin’ in the vase on the mantle piece?”
“No,” said Mr. Feeney, “but I’m gettin’ closer all the time.”


Reilly went to trial for armed robbery.
The jury foreman came out and announced, “Not guilty.”
“That’s grand!” shouted Reilly. “Does that mean I can keep the money?”


Irish lass customer: “Could I be trying on that dress in the window?”
Shopkeeper: “I’d prefer that you use the dressing room.”


Murphy told Quinn that his wife was driving him to drink.
Quinn thinks he’s very lucky because his own wife makes him walk.


“O’Ryan,” asked the druggist, “did that mudpack I gave you improve your wife’s appearance?”
“It did surely,” replied O’Ryan, “but it keeps fallin’ off!”
