I must have missed Geography Class that day in School. Apparently we have an "Irish Riviera".
Reminds me of a not so complimentary song the Humblebums (Gerry Rafferty & Billy Connolly) had about the Scottish resort of Dunoon

The Irish Riviera is also a slang expression that can refer to any of several seaside communities in the United States with high population densities of Irish-Americans
