The descendants of Spanish-Armada-era marriages between shipwrecked Spanish sailors and the women of the island that they nearly invariably washed up on, Ireland. They had no practical way to return to Spain (due to a complete lack of a large enough vessel to sail the north atlantic), and therefore lived out the remainder of their lives on the emerald isle. Their multiracial children had skin of a darker hue than the often pale Irish, and in accordance with the notoriety of Irish racism, these children were labeled "Black Irish" and often found themselves to be outcasts. Centuries of generational breeding have pretty much eliminated any noticeable difference between those with Black Irish blood and those without.
Juan O'malley is Black Irish.
