Did You Know...

Everyone is Irish on Saint Patrick's Day

Irish Americans have a vibrant history stretching back to the Colonial era, as these facts from historians and the U.S. Census Bureau demonstrate: 

  • Twenty-two U.S. presidents have Irish roots. Andrew Jackson is the only president whose parents were both born in Ireland. 
  • Nine signatories of the 1776 Declaration of Independence were either Irish immigrants or descended from Irish immigrants. 
  • More than 20 of George Washington’s Revolutionary War generals and the first man to hold a commission in the U.S. Navy were Irish also. 
  • More than 190,000 Irish-born Americans fought in the 1861–1865 Civil War. 
  • The Congressional Medal of Honor, the highest U.S. military honor, has been awarded to 253 Irish-born men. That’s more than the number of awardees born in any other nation, except the United States. 
  • More than 34 million Americans claim Irish ancestry. That’s seven times the population of Ireland itself. 
  • There are 16 places in the United States named Dublin, after Ireland’s capital.  
  • In the U.S., St. Patrick’s Day has become an opportunity for everyone — Irish or not — to celebrate and offer their own interpretation of “Irishness.” As the saying goes, everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.
