Was George considered Black Irish?

Yes, I know he was English, but his ancestry was Irish.  Do you think he was Black Irish (dark hair and eyes) as opposed to the blue-eyed, red-haired Irish?  If I'm remembering correctly his mom's father was from County Wicklow, and his father's family, several generations back, from County Sligo.  Black Irish men are sooooo good-looking!

Also, George's favourite tea was Earl Grey, I read somewhere.  Does anyone know how he drank that?  Plain, or with milk, lemon, sugar? 

These are just random questions on my mind today.

larainefan:
I was really hoping someone would know the answer to these two questions, that's too bad.

BlueMeanie:
He wasn't black. Is that a big enough answer? A more ludicrous thread I have never seen.!!  4ac

larainefan:
Black Irish refers to anyone Irish with dark hair and eyes, as opposed to the Irish with more usual coloring of red hair and blue or green eyes, I believe I stated that in my original post.  It has nothing to do with 'being black', it is actually a very common term.
