The second largest group in america, after the germans. Presidents Reagan and Kennedy were Irish and Bill Clinton was half-irish. Tougher than nails, they are regarded as great fighters and even greater writers. (Think Joyce, Yeats, Doyle, etc.) Once looked down upon (by the boring ass wasps..) they rose up through the ranks of American society and are now one of the most popular and successful groups in the country.
George Clooney, Harrison Ford, Sean Penn, Conan O'Brien, Tom Brady, Sharon Stone, Vince McMahon, Brian Williams, Jack Welch, Carson Daly, Nolan Ryan, Dennis Leary, Pat Riley, Dropkick Murphys, JFK, Tom Clancy, Lindsay Lohan, Jenny McCarthy, are all Irish-Americans
