Nearly 35 million Americans claim some or total Irish heritage – a figure about seven times the actual population of Ireland itself. In fact, Germans are the only ethnic group larger than the Irish in the population of the United States. Surprisingly, Pittsburgh has the highest percentage of Irish-Americans among major cities, followed closely by Boston and Philadelphia with Louisville batting in the clean-up spot for Irish population. Massachusetts has the largest number of Irish-Americans by state – and an astonishing 22 U.S. Presidents claim some Irish heritage.
The shamrock is a young sprig and has been adopted as a symbol of Ireland. Legend has it that Ireland’s patron saint, St. Patrick, used the shamrock’s three leaves bound by a common stalk in the fifth century as a metaphor for the Christian Holy Trinity. Before that, the shamrock was sacred to Celtic druids who saw the triad formed by the leaves as a symbol of the number three, which was a mystical number to the Celts and other ancient civilizations.
