Irish Catholics are as Catholic as anyone else who professes the Catholic Faith. "Differences" might be found in particular devotions, saints and cultural customs that the Irish celebrate, but these are not so much differences as venues of expression.
There isn't one. A catholic, is a catholic. Roman catholic is the catholism practised today, but it doesn't mean they're roman. Irish catholics are Roman catholics. American catholics are Roman catholics. Italian catholics are Roman catholics. It doesn't mean they're roman, but rome was where it origiated, that's why the pope lives there.

The Irish Catholics are descended from a population that was in Ireland long before the arrival of the Protestants. In terms of religion, Protestantism and Catholicism differ primarily in that Catholicism is a religion that owes its loyalty to the Pope, whereas Protestantism does not owe loyalty to the Pope and is fragmented into a variety of branches, some of which have their own religious leaders (such as the Archbishop of Canterbury, who is the head of the Anglican Church) and some of which have no overall leader, just local leaders (Baptists, for example). Irish Protestants are primarily Anglicans.

It wasn't so much between Catholics and protestants as between Irish (who were mostly Catholic) and Englishmen (who were mostly protestant).

It made life particularly difficult for Irish Catholics for whom the practice of their faith was illegal. One of the unforeseen benefits was, that for the most part, the Catholic faith of the Irish was particularly strong, comparable to the oppressed Catholics in Poland. As the Catholics have gained ascendancy, they have started to lose their faith and become indistinguishable from other modern people.
