lots of influential Americans think they have Irish roots.
the population of Ireland fell from close to 9 million to about 4 million in the famine at the end of the 19th century.
The Irish were invaded by the British and Brits had a stranglehold of the Irish for the better part of a millenium,
the British, led by their bloodthirsty leader Oliver Cromwell, terrorized Irish citizens and treated them like scum. Nevertheless the Irish remained strong and proud and in 1916 the British government pressured Michael Collins (the Nationalist leader) into signing a treaty which partly seperated them from the british
the Irish are one of the best nations on the Earth
