The Irish word for 'brown' is 'donn' which is pronounced like 'down' in Co. Galway.
There are three major dialects in Irish often differing in pronunciation.

The (Scottish) Gaelic is also 'donn'. Not sure about pronunciation.

Is medium brown hair with green eyes or dark hair with deep brown eyes more genetically Irish?

The hair and eye color does not and cannot tell what descent you come from. Yet I'm Irish and I don't have fair skin at all. I rarely get sun burned. Studies have shown that generally speaking Irish people are genetically closer to the peoples of northern Spain. About 90% of the Irish have a fair skin, but 60% have no freckling. The slightly darker shade of skin (10%) is found in N Leinster (not in the west). The Irish really don't have many purely brown eyed people but instead hazel eyed individuals (often called brown).

What does 'Black Irish'mean?

A black-haired Irish person with usually hazel or brown eyes, but also blue. This is because most Irish people have brown or red or reddish hair, and have very fair complected or freckled skins. Thus anyone who had an average or relatively 'dark' skin combined with black hair was called Black Irish.

How did the Irish feel about Irish jokes?

they dont like them --- We hate them. Although, to be fair, Irish comedians of course make a lot of jokes about the Irish which are accepted. But that is only because Irish comedians say things that the Irish can relate to. Whereas, when people outside of Ireland make Irish jokes, they're usually based on stereotypes and can be extremely insulting.
