inoffensive term used by protestants in the north of ireland to try and annoy the rightful inhabitants of the whole of ireland. comes from the fianna in irish mythology and then was hijacked by irish immigrants in the states to form the fenian brotherhood who fought for irish freedom by sitting in bars in new york and lamented about ould ireland who then went on to ram their country of origin down everybodys throat by having st patricks day marches and thanks to them 90 percent of americans lay claim to irish descent on one day of the year when it suits them.
the fools the fools they have left us our fenian dead.

They are essentially the pioneers of modern terrorism, and used violent methods in order to gain what they wanted - in this case they wanted Ireland to be made a Republic, separate from Britain and with their own Parliament.
Members of the Irish Republican Brotherhood were Fenians.
