Default Irish blend?

So I here a lot about full English blends and the like. I got my new pipe and plan on picking up a tin or two of some English blends of my choosing, but is there a such thing as Irish Blends? I don't know why...but I just really want an Irish Tobacco..any such thing?

I believe there are Irish Blends, Peterson do an Irish Flake (I think?) and I'm sure there are more out there.

Jim is correct, Peterson does have some stuff. I don't think they are made in Ireland though (Germany or Denmark I don't remember) and there is no class of blend known as Irish.

Peterson is an Irish company, but no there are no blends made in Ireland. There aren't even that many still made in the UK anymore.
