Ann,
I never thought of myself as overly witty really which is what I imagine 'Irish Diplomacy' means. I would now quite a few that would be though.

Annie,
I have to ask so how is Irish Diplomacy a oxymoron?
Where ever I go, I'll always have one foot in Ireland   /   I'm not a complete fool. Some parts are missing.

Steve,  I was always told that the Irish tell it like it is.  Sometimes that's not diplomatic.  There isn't anyone who has a better way with words as an Irishman.  annieg
