St. Patrick's Day often prompts discussions on what it means to be Irish.

North Seem To Be Rebels, South Seem To Be Leprechauns

In 1980 The Late Late Show travelled to London for St. Patrick's Day and Gay Byrne took to the streets to ask Londoners what they know about Ireland and the Irish.

Gay asks people for their opinions about Ireland and the Irish. Many hold stereotypical opinions of Ireland and the Irish.

This episode of The Late Late Show was broadcst on 15 March 1980.
