no honestly im irish

11 things only Irish Americans will understand

It’s a tough life.


1. You have to face so many people telling you you’re NOT REALLY IRISH

You are! Your mam is literally Irish!

2. You have a name no one can pronounce

It’s bad enough being called Aoife in Ireland, but try get through high school with a name like that. You still get to roll your eyes at the girl called Eireann though. Now SHE, is not Irish.

3. If you don’t live in the North East, half your family do

4. You are constantly inundated with requests from your Irish cousins

Now that we have Abercrombie though, it’s died down a bit.

5. You’re catholic, and know the joy of your grandmother lighting a candle for you

It’s good luck! But get up to mass now.

6. You support Notre Dame


7. Your family is way bigger than everyone around you

8. You were forced into Irish dancing at some point in your life

9. You are potentially the only person in your state that says Paddy’s Day instead of Patty’s

And you realise green beer is an atrocity.

10. You own something with the claddagh on it, but you’re not quite sure what it means

11. And your alcohol tolerance is higher than most

The sad truth, but you feel at home in an Irish pub.
