the term originates from many centuries ago when an Irishman by the name of Times Shermend was out in the vally and drank so much whiskey that he ended up stumbling off a huge cliff and landed in a huge patch of clovers that saved his life. This explains why Irishmen love the clover
I'm not sure what the origin of the term is but it's not this stupid answer.
The term "Fighting Irish" is a handle which traces back to an infantry brigade made up of all Irish immigrants who fought for the Union in the Civil War. The brigade official title "The Irish Brigade" and consisted of 69th NY, 63rd NY, 88th NY, 116th Pennsylvania, and 28th Mass. Infantry Regiments, but was dubbed "The Fighting Irish" by regiment members shortly after it's formation.
Native Irishmen James Fair, James Flood, William O'Brien and John Mackay were collectively known as the "Silver Kings" after they hit the famed Comstock Lode. Of course all the other fortune seekers blamed 'dumb luck' rather than hard work for the 'Luck of the Irish', so there's always a measure of derision in the phrase.

Not really. Irish wear a lot of green. A lucky clover is green. So,basically it means good luck.Also you might just be superstitious. love and peace funnygal709 :)Actually the phrase did indeed refer to Bad Luck. There's also a variation on Murphy's Law: 'If it can go wrong, it will. 'Tis the luck of the Irish."
