An Irish American is someone who has immigrated to America from Ireland, and families of those that immigrated here. We Americans are rather fond of those Irish, though, so on St. Patrick's Day, just about all of us wear green! We have parades in several of our cities to celebrate that special day, as well.

AnswerAmerican citizen from .. Ireland...or of Irish heritage

At one time the Irish were not welcome in the United States but that is not a problem any more. Many Americans celebrate St. Patrick's Day even if they are not Irish.

Many Americans didn't like the Irish. Some people treated them very badly and threw stuff at them as they came off the boats to step on American soil. Some Americans felt that the Irish were coming to take their jobs.

By definition, an Irish American is already an American, so they wouldn't be entering the country due to already being in it. If you are looking on how to get into the US from Ireland, you should look here for information: http://travel.state.gov/index.html

Irish Americans aren't real. They're just Americans who think they're Irish because one of their ancestors who came to America in 1867 were Irish. Any "Irish-Americans" reading this - YOU ARE NOT IRISH!!

It depends on your definition of "Irish": if you mean of Gaelic Catholic Irish then it would be John F. Kennedy. If you choose to include the "Ulster Scots" ("Scotch-Irish") as "Irish" then the answer is Andrew Jackson.
