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!!!

An overly stereotyped group of upstanding individuals.
"We're the first ones drinking, the last ones standing, we're the only friends you got, while we're laughing and singin' your ears are all ringin', I guess we're everything you're not!!"

-"The Last Ones Standing" by Ceann (an irish rock band)

The only race of people capable to build and destroy New York City.
The early New York Irish built New York, but after they were pissed they burnt it down..then built it back up

THE COOLEST PEOPLE ON THE EARTH.Live by the dirty fucking Brits.We can hold our liquor but no were not alcoholics.
In the past and even now we are discriminated against.We are,including the scots, and the blacks are the toughest ppl ever.Our men work hard to provide.Our women are tough strong and can fight as well if not better than the guys.Many of us live in Boston , are catholic and have fiery tempers.But we are the best.
Irish people are cooler than the french , italian , and Canadian.racist?who cares,im irish.
