Nearly 35 million Americans claim some or total Irish heritage – a figure about 7 times the actual population of Ireland itself. 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 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 and an astonishing 22 American 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 3 leaves bound by a common stalk in the 5th 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 symbolic of the number 3 which was a mystical number to the Celts and other ancient civilizations.
