Best Answer

Among the Irish;

43% have dark hair,

35% have medium brown hair,

10% have red and reddish-brown hair,

a minority with light hair.

The eye color is about evenly divided between blue eyes and mixed eye colour.

About 90% have rather fair skin, 10% have a 'brunet white' skin tone (in the Midlands). 60% have no freckling at all.

The combination of dark hair and light eyes seems noticeable among Irish.

Beyond that tall or short, slender or large-framed, etc.
