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, 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!)

(i) A person/object that originates from Ireland.

(ii) An identity many middle-aged American's tend to associate themselves with. Contrary to their belief, they are not Irish. Having a "great-granddaddy" from Ireland does not make you Irish.
Colin Farrell is Irish

the only people who will make you feel guilty for smoking marijuana while guzzling a bottle of jack daniels. they are tough people. they could definitely kick my ass, if not physically, definitely verbally.
