# Do the stars in irregular galaxies orbit anything?

Do the stars of irregular galaxies (such as the Magellanic clouds) orbit a more precise point or are they just, I don't know, flying around? If they orbit, how stable would such orbits be, considering the overlapping of many different stellar orbits without any main ecliptic? This post doesn't mention irregular galaxies.

In spirals and elliptical, the potential is rather symmetric, whereas in irregulars it is quite… irregular. That means that, if you were to take two images of a galaxy, separated by a period of order the dynamical time scale ($$t_\mathrm{dyn} \sim \sqrt{R^3/GM} \sim 100$$ million years), a spiral and an elliptical would look more or less the same, while the irregular would probably have changed its shape notably.
