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!!!
