Sisterknight, I think you're mistaking him. He's just pointing out that calling yourself Irish, even if you've never been there, is beyond flawed. And assuming your temper and his stubbornness (I'd call it steadfastness) comes from your Scottish heritage is borderline insulting. Kind of like saying you like to get drunk because you're Irish. Try not to get too drawn into stereotypes. wink.gif

Glaswegian, I never took your posts to say you had a lack of pride in your nation or heritage. As always, the opinion of a true Scot/Irish/English/etc. citizen is appreciated.

i never intended to be insulting i was just poking at the bear, he sounds so much like my grandda, i do apologize.
does that mean that i should take it that if i called you the peacekeeper because you're canadian you'll be insulted too? wink.gif

Not when I'm playing the part. wink.gif Besides, most people will accept a stereotype if it's a positive attribute. Ask me if I've taken my Fishing boat in for the year and I might get a bit annoyed, though.sly.gif

Yes, perhaps the surname originated from England sad.gif but my blood is still Irish!

I have to say that my ancestors also originated from Leeds, in Britain, and I am very, very proud of my British ancestry!

I agree. Glaswegian's posts were well stated. Sometimes I think we get overly sentimental about our roots. I am proud of my Scots-Irish, British and Polish ancestors, but I am an American by birth and nothing'll ever change that fact.
