Thinking of writing a story involving an Irish crook named Jack Carragan. Was just wondering if that name made you make any assumptions when you first read it? or Did you make any assumptions because of the way Irish characters are often portrayed? So far I want to Avoid as many Irish Cliches as possible, so the best scene will not be in a bar, he is not a bare knuckle boxer, his Father is not a traveler and he is not so hard he will always get back up no matter how hard the baiting or beating he takes. He will not be particularly religious either and he will be from the inner city of dublin and will speak like that and not with the purple speech of the country people. Just wondering if there is anymore cliches that your sick of seeing if any and if you taught of any at all when you seen that he was Irish?
