I believe that’s one of the reasons why one’s heritage is often put to question, especially in Ireland. I have the feeling that Irish people, in Ireland, are acutely aware of those who come to Ireland claiming that they’re “Irish,” but could hardly tell the difference between Dublin and Galway.
But that’s not to say that one degree of Irish is better than another, either. It’s one thing to say you’re Irish, and it’s another to be Irish. I myself claim to be Irish, but that claim was challenged by some Irish-born while I was living in Dublin. Ultimately, it really is your location that defines it.
