LUCK OF THE IRISH - is an ironic (sarcastic) phrase. The Irish have been a spectacularly unlucky race historically. The luck of the Irish is historically "bad luck" - their emigrants often being disliked, treated badly, and poverty stricken. The "luck of the Irish" is now often misused to imply good luck. Irish successes in America were often doubted, as Americans didn't think them capable, so success was termed luck, hence the "luck of the Irish" - no doubt helped by Irish successes on the goldfields and silver mines.
