    What are the most Irish populated Regions/Cities in England?

    England only.

    To what generation?

    Direct Irish? Second/third-generation? Historic?

    In any case, I'd say Liverpool, but London and Bristol both have substantial Irish-descended populations. Around a quarter of the English population has some Irish descent, so most places will have some degree of Irish ancestry.

    Birmingham has a lot of Irish people. I myself am 3rd generation .I would also say that Glasgow has lots too. My Grandad was born in Coatbridge ( of Irish parents) and it used to be called "Little Ireland" back then because of the amount of Irish residents.

    I suppose Liverpool or Manchester.

    Basically, anywhere along the west coast, including harbours and ports.

    Liverpool, very much so. Followed by Birmingham and surrounding areas - Coventry weirdly enough because of the engineering employment that boomed there decades ago.

    So the North West and the West Midlands? I may be wrong but does Birmingham have the biggest St Patricks day parade aside from Dublin and NY ?

    London, I'd say it was Liverpool/Manchester a decade or so ago but not now, as with the prevelance of cheap flights the shift has changed.

    From my experience in England thus far Plymouth has quite a lot of Irish, as does Cambridge. The easiest way to find out the answer would be to go to a pub on Paddy's Day and ask who is Irish. Or would it?

    Heres a wiki about it.

    It says Liverpool has the largest per-capita Irish population of any English city.

    Manchester is well known for it's Irish St Patrick's day parade, which is, I think the largest outside of New York, and not Birmingham.

    Yes, it is the biggest outside of New York. Levenshulme in Manchester has the largest Irish population outside of London.

    I know that, believe me! I can't stand the top hats people wear on the day, and would love to burn the whole frickin lot of them! The hats, not the people that wear them!
