The true meaning of being Irish

The true meaning of being Irish

With the arrival of so many new people to Ireland and everybody wanting to call themselves Irish and everybody fighting over the meaning of the term especially during debates around immigration when things can get quite heated . I feel its important to explain the concept of Irish . 

For the most part , there are two main groups. 
 

1) Irish through citizenship .

This is a legal status awarded by the State
 

2) Irish through genealogy

You share a particular genetic heritage associated with the history of the Island of Ireland . 

For example ,  a study by scientists in Trinity College found that most Irish People have largely maintained their pre-Neolithic genetic heritage .

The prevalence of ancient genes in Ireland  such as a genetic marker known as Haplogroup 1 was found in most Irish men .

It also found that one in five males sampled in Northwestern Ireland is likely a patrilineal descendent of a single early medieval ancestor . People falling into this category are '
indigenous Irish' , In a way just like the native americans .  

I hope this gives some clarity to the issue and if you have any questions please feel free to post a comment below . Thank You . sad4.gif

In 1961 , President Éamon de Valera became the first person to appear on RTE Telefís Éireann . Addressing the public de Valera gave a cautious welcome to the new service. I am privileged in being the first to address you on our new service, Telefís Éireann.
