An Irish American who is glorified by the people of Ireland, even though many look down at Irish Americans showing extreme pride and interest in Ireland's history and culture.
If the Irish don't like Irish Americans having intense pride in their land, why is JFK's ancestral home a national monument?

American Tourist: "Hey I saw a sign for Andrew Jackson's cottage." US Tourist #2: "That name sounds familiar..."

I'm an American but I like hurling. It's pretty dirty. You fellas across the pond should check out lacrosse.

I reversed this term to point out some hypocrisy.

There's an Irish heritage regiment (with plastic paddys) in the US National Guard called the Fighting 69th; its motto: "Gentle when stroked, fierce when provoked." LOL at dirty connotations.

a plastic paddy is someone who thinks they're irish when born in any other country but ireland. could also be used to describe protestants in the south of ireland who arent irish by birth or descendancy. most plastic paddys have little or no irish blood in them and come from the states or australia.
