I as an Irish person born and raised cannot stand people finding the need to tell me their percent of Irish or English heritage or Irish sir names(that most of the time I've never heard of).
I know that it is something to be proud but the fact that your mothers dads dogs sister is Irish does not actually make you Irish.
claim Canadian!be proud to be Canadian, It's where you're from. I apologize for my lack of connection to those of you who want to share your history with me but after so many years, to be completely blunt, I just don't care. I believe the culture and traditions of where you grow up defines your nationality and identity, not your great great great grandmother
