On Tuesday night in New York, Saiorse Ronan, the Academy Award nominated actress from 2015’s “Brooklyn,” joined Jimmy Fallon and explained some of her culture’s customs.

Though she was born in the Bronx, Ronan was raised in Ireland and has a very heavy Irish accent, which Fallon briefly tried to replicate.
After the two discussed a bad party Ronan had gone to, Fallon began to recall a different type of party he had attended in Ronan’s home country of Ireland.
While vacationing with his sister, Fallon found himself in a small town bar and inadvertently got caught in a “lock-in” with the local townspeople and the pub’s owner.
Ronan then explained this concept to Fallon and noted that it wasn’t unusual to find yourself drinking with a pub owner.
“Every single gathering that we have at home […] it will usually end up with you drinking with the owner of a pub.”
“The whole idea of a lock-in [was that] the policemen wouldn’t know about […] but they’re usually in the lock in!”
