    The typical skin tone of the British isles is very pale, with a rosy complection. Ie the "English Rose" example of womanhood is always described as having very fair skin but with rosy pink cheeks. Out of all the nations of the British isles the Welsh are the darkest, both in hair and eye pigmentations and in skintone, although still light compared to a mediteranean country for example.

    I realize that, but as I said before just because you're of Native Irish stock doesn't necessarily mean that you will have dark or red hair. The most common hair color amongst the Irish is medium brown, about 10% have red or reddish hair and I believe light-brown or blonde shades are more common than red.

    Yes, but blonde hair is still not uncommon in Ireland as stereotypes always seem to want to portray.

    You mean, like in this movie, from 2006?



    On a side note, they portrayed the Irish pretty damn terribly in that movie.

    I was not pleased.

    But, we're really, really getting off-topic here....

    True blonde hair is quite uncommon in Ireland. I agree with Angelcynn Beorn... the most common hair colouring in Ireland tends to be very dark brown (many would consider it black) and red.
