    Why do all Americans claim to have a little bit of Irish in them.



    Lol, over the years ive spoken and dealt with thousands of people in the US, and all i ever come across are people who's for some reason or another Irish or have some distant reletive who is.

    Many times they have no association to Ireland at all.

    So.. what is it with you guys? Whats so great about Ireland? In the UK we hate them.

    There probably are a lot of US citizens with Irish blood. Hell, my grandfather was half Irish and I am black! My aunt and uncle have red hair and extremely tanned looking skin. When I stay in the sun for a long time my hair gets red as well...

    Reminds me of something, i used to work with a Lady, she was expecting her first baby, she had curly ginger hair. Her husband and baby father was black. I can remember her in the office once, for about 2 hours going crazy with the thought that her baby might pop out being black with a ginger afro!

    You're right Messy. Most people think its' cool to be irish because of their heavy drinking and overall friendliness. Entertainment/movies/music make it look cool also. Let's also throw in Leprechauns, the cool accent they have, and overall beauty of the land. Who the fuk doesn't want to be irish!, lol.

    I've been to Ireland and I must say it's one of my favorite places in the world even though my family is more from Scotland. I have a Mc as a last name and people think i'm fukin Irish when they hear it, but it's Scottish.

    Fuk me i'm Irish

    Hahaha I kinow what you mean. I was thinking about that the other day while I was on myspace. I didnt know that most of the people I went to school with are Irish. I think there like distant aunt, uncles, cousin that walks the guy that delivers pizza to the lady that is Irish, there for they think it also makes them Irish.

    If our country wasn't occupied by the British army we wouldn't need our freedom fighters. But I swear to good god we will have our day buddy.

    As to the question. I've no idea why most Americans claim to be part Irish, really I don't. But most wouldn't claim to be British, since they had to kick the British out of their country at one stage too!.

    the greek portion of the british royal family actually traces back to denmark. all of greece's former aristoracy is germanic. the greeks are a bunch of half turks, so they needed real europeans to govern them.

    at any rate most people in the states are mixed, esp. if you come from an older family. myself, i don't have any irish ancestors, but a lot of people are part irish. i'm glad i don't though because it's not as prestigous to come from a catholic country originally. america was almost all protestant at it's peak, and it's been downhill ever since they started letting anyone in, from no matter how crap a country they came from.

    big ups to ireland though, as they're no longer a crap country and are now doing really well despite the handicap of red hair.

    They are not freedom fighters, they are bankrobbing, money extorting, drug de****g terrorists who blow up innocent people.

    And what about the Irish people who WANT to be British?

    Terrorism is never the answer, whatever you dress it up as.

    exactly, only the english would know this so well, seeing how they have terrorized ever type of person in the world. without english history, the world would have been a much better place, shame the germans didnt hate the english, instead of the jews
