Only by those quick to take offense who forget that there's as much orange in the Irish flag as there is green.

Northern Irish people, invluding Loyalists/Unionists, are Irish too.

Anyway, I'm one from the Southside. (Of Dublin). More specifically, our house is at 53 18'44.41N, 6 14'24.32W.

Not Irish but I grew up I the south Bronx, went to grammar and catholic high school, all the priests and the brothers were Irish or recently decendant. St Patty's day in NYC everything stopped, it was a Catholic holiday, the shillalay was shook, the Blarney Stones were packed, smiles and liquor were on everyone's breath, the bagpipes at the Parade on 5th Ave, the Hibernians and all the Emerald societys even the NYPD gave you a break well at least from a parking ticket. Now in south florida no one here knows what real culture and what maybe the greatest contribution to the USA except maybe for the Italians and I say that because I am Italian american

O rly?

I will take your word. I thoought St Patrick's day was about recognizing the introduction of Catholic Christianisty to to Ireland, not Irish ethnicity.

Thinkning about it, maybe I'm totally wrong.

Well, St. Pat was a Saint before Prods even existed. The English until they mostly left had the Most Illustrious Order of Saint Patrick as an order for Irish peers.ds

That's why Patrick is the patron saint of the country, yes. That, and the fact that he banished snakes, penguins, elephants, chupacabras, kangaroos and three-toed-sloths from the country. There is nothing, however, that states that religion has any effect over if you are Irish or not. The Northern Irish deal isn't anything to do with religion, it's an issue over which government controls the province. (Catholic/Protestant is merely a convenient, and not always accurate, dividing description) Anyone from the whole island is considered Irish. Witness the Irish rugby team, which consists of people from both sides of the border. (They don't play the Republic's national anthem by default, they play a neutral tune called 'Ireland's Call'). Used to be they'd play the Irish anthem in the Republic, God Save the Queen in the UK, and a bit of both everywhere else.
All people from Northern Ireland regardless of political persuasion are still entitled to an Republic of Ireland passport, even after the territorial claim was dropped from the Constitution as part of the peace deal.

Oh yeah? If he didn't banish the snakes, who did? Don't believe everything that you read on the Web... :P

Fair point on the Catholic/Christianity deal though. I guess it depends on if you believe he taught the Catholic form of Christianity or not.
