тут требуется небольшой, но оттого не менее противный исторический экскурс.
В свое время в бедной Ирландии детей было не прокормить, аборты запрещали, а презервативов не существовало - ну как в России при Сталине. Так вот, Ирландцы приспособились и половой акт стали осуществлять по-ирландски (как у нас говорят про все, что делается не по-людски - через жопу). Такая сексуальная практика и обозначается этим термином.
Пожалуйста не путайте обсуждаемое выражение с "The United Way" - это организация, которая деньги на бедных собирает, по системе светлой памяти ДОСААФа. Перспективно было бы создать организацию United Irish Way с целью распространения среди аборигенов интересных начинаний.
