I was just wondering cause people I know who are of Irish descent have clover symbols everywhere, including tattooed on their bodies.

I mean it's not like you see Americans of German descent with swastikas hanging around. j/k lol

Irish on my father's side of the family. The O'Hanna's to be exact. They moved from Scottland to Ireland in the 1400's and spent the next 400 years there.

[edit on 31-1-2008 by thehumbleone]


Pride, I'm sure.

I celebrate all of my ancestors' cultures as best as I can. I constantly try to learn more about where my family came from, so that I can respect my roots and teach my future children about the people that came before them.

I had one Irish grandmother, and one Sicilian grandmother, and I feel especially close ties with those two aspects of my ethnic heritage. I am extremely proud!!

if it was O'Hannan when you moved from scotland that usually means that your ancestors came from ireland and moved to scotland, as the O' prefix is not that common in scotland unless your of irish decent! just thought you might like to know!

Perhaps they did come from Ireland and stay a few centuries in Scottland before moving back. I know they left off the "O" in O'Hanna when they came to the states.

Another Irishman raises his hand, here. My great-grandfather, Blair, immigrated to America from Derry in the early 1800's. My other great- grandfather, McCormick, from Dublin around the same time.

Erin-go-Bragh!!

I'm so Irish, I bleed green!

I would be one of those people; it's tatooed on my right bicep...and it's called a shamrock from the Irish word seamrog which means...er, well, small clover. Anyway, I'm ready for a pint of Guiness, gotta go!

Well, I'm a quarter Irish/English, if that counts. With a fully County Cork Irish traced last name(not related to my Irish blood due to adoption). Plus I have red hair and freckles... but look more German despite that.

I am of Irish ancestry. My grandfather was born over there. I forget the name of the town, but it was in County Cork. My mother was lucky enough to visit Eamon and the rest back in 1993. I am proud to be of Irish desent.
