I'm of Irish descent, and I love red haired women. I think its genetic on the appreciation side as well.
I expect that the red hair gene is recessive, like blond hair. The weather in the old country is dreadful, cold, gray, windy, wet. Worse than England due to the prevailing westerlies.
My mother brought me a gift when she visited Ireland, a cable knit sweater. Beautiful. But it was far to warm to wear 99% of the time here in the Washington DC area.

Would you have worn it ?
I once worked at as a camera assistant during a football/soccer match (European Football Championship 1988 in Germany) between Ireland and the Netherlands. I had 20.000 Irish in my back with lots of red heads in between. Whole families came there from Ireland to support their team. I never forget how they celebrated the whole match. I felt being in heaven.
