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!!!

1. (in British usage) illogical, back-to-front. (This term is used by prejudiced people.)

2. (in American usage) not really Irish at all, lacking Irish citizenship, having little or no knowledge of Ireland, and knowing nothing of the Irish language or Irish culture, but possessing a great-great-grandparent (or the like) who was Irish. Not regarded as Irish by actual genuinely Irish people (those with Irish nationality).
1. "Why are you doing it that way? That's so Irish!"

2. American One: "I'm Irish."
American Two: "I'm English, Irish, Scottish, French, and German!"

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 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.
Oh, I'm an Irish Catholic, my religion is the best and all others suck.

Look at that "tough" Irish kid talking shit to everyone just to start a brawl.
