    Default My Irish ancestry

    Like a lot of Americans, I claim an Irish ancestry, although according to my mother (dad was the Irishman) i'm a Euro mix of Irish, English, German, French, with a little Native American tossed in. I'm curious if there's any Irish or Americans of Irish decent on the forum.

    I'm also curious as to what regard the Irish & Ireland are held by you folks living in the UK/Europe/Australia et al.

    Top 'o the morning to ya.

    I got a few Irish mates in the army and they are all sound lads, like a drink and a laugh and the ones I have met are very friendly.

    Might go for tour of Ireland on my motorbike next Summer

    Over 100 years ago they were considered scum of the earth and the English were racist towards them fortunately the Jews and the Blacks came to take their place.

    Some people will have you think that all Irish are a bunch of alcohol guzzling buffoons, but the rumbling conflict in Northern Ireland suggests otherwise. Ireland has a range of different people, personalities and individuals same as anywhere else, its just the fact that so many people claim irish ancestry means that they can find friends almost anywhere.

    To be such a small Island, Ireland and the Irish have made a huge/amazing impact on the world. At least 25% of the population in America & Australia claim an Irish ancestry, that's a lot of people, just in those 2 countries, an estimated 80 million worldwide.

    The Irish were also considered scum when they migrated to America, most during the potato famine.

    I sometimes tell people who notice that I have an Irish sounding last name, that i'm at least 50% Irish, and 50% German, English, French and Native American. I had a 100% chance of becoming an alcoholic before I turned 18.

    I'm mostly Swedish, Irish, English, Nordic, and I have a little bit of everything.

    I have a black ancestor. His name was Slave. Poor boy.

    I think the famine led to a lot of the migration and the racism and stereotyping they faced was disgusting. The IRA bombing also alienated them as a community. They are the biggest ethnic minority in England.
