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!

or

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!!!

The people of Ireland. These people are very good looking and have very big dicks. (Truth) They all are very good fighters and all are very strong.
"Hey, Pat, your Irish right? I bet you could kick a Russian's, Pole's, and a German ass with one hand!"

For the great Gaels of Ireland,
Are the men that God made mad,
For all their wars are merry,
and all their songs are sad.

People from Ireland. Also a language. Don't ask me if Ireland is considered an English speaking Nation or not because I don't know.
I am Irish because my grandmother is from Ireland.
