What you are if you live in, where born in or have parents who were born in Ireland.

Not what Americans are if their ancestors came from Ireland. You are American, your ancestors were Irish.
American Person: Oh my god, you're Irish. My husband is from Cork. He's never been there though. (someone actually said this to me!)

Irish Person: Ri-ight!


American Person: Oh my god, it's Saint Patrick's day. I didn't realise it. I should wear something green, I'm Irish. (someone also said this to me!)

Irish person: No you're not, you're American with Irish ancestors!!!

An overly stereotyped group of upstanding individuals.
"We're the first ones drinking, the last ones standing, we're the only friends you got, while we're laughing and singin' your ears are all ringin', I guess we're everything you're not!!"

-"The Last Ones Standing" by Ceann (an irish rock band)

The only race of people capable to build and destroy New York City.
The early New York Irish built New York, but after they were pissed they burnt it down..then built it back up

A race of people who have come under attack by the ignorance of people (mainly living in America) who believe that due to their partial lineage back to the people of Ireland, are somehow "Irish", even though they have never even been to ireland. It is beleived widely to be a form of embarrasment or a way to escape the uninteresting and often boreing fact that these people are card holding americans whos mothers and fathers were born here as were they, and therefore have none of the crudentials that would validate and irish citizenship.

Ireland is also known to those who have lived there for its kick ass Fish and Chips and pride in Thick, rich, day-fresh guinness.

THE COOLEST PEOPLE ON THE EARTH.Live by the dirty fucking Brits.We can hold our liquor but no were not alcoholics.
In the past and even now we are discriminated against.We are,including the scots, and the blacks are the toughest ppl ever.Our men work hard to provide.Our women are tough strong and can fight as well if not better than the guys.Many of us live in Boston , are catholic and have fiery tempers.But we are the best.
