Exactly. I'm more Irish than most Americans but you don't see me dressing up like a leprachaun and shouting it from the roof tops.

Even those Americans who are of Irish heritage, for most of them it was so bloodly long ago that Great-Great Grandad Seamus and his wife went over to America that they're no more Irish than they are African.
lol. Some people do like to go a bit over the top...Have you ever been to an Irish pub in the US on St. Pattie's day? It's quite scary... :rolleyes:

How do you work out what fraction of you in what nationality?

Both my mum's parents were Irish but she was born in England. All my Dad's side is English.

Easy. You trace your heritage and see what family members were of what nationality. Then it's basic mathematics from there. Mine took a while. I'm a full 1/2 portuguese, 1/4 irish, 1/16 British, 1/16 Scottish, and 1/8 dutch.

Well she was born in England so she can't be fully Irish.

She was born in England, but you said that both her parents were full Irish didn't you?

Well following bloodlines if your mum's parents were both Irish then she would be Irish regardless of being born in England. So, your Dad would be English, your mum Irish, and you a half-breed!

If a Camel is born in a stable it is still a camel, not a horse.

Regardless of where she was born, her entire family is Irish, so that makes her full.

Are you comparing my mother to a horse? :p:

OK, so I'm a mongrel then. I never realised I was half-Irish before - perhaps I'll join the IRA now.

With that combination, you're probably quite fit....

No. It means she doesn't really understand what British means. "I am 1/16th Scottish and 1/16th British" doesn't mean anything since Scots are Brits.
