About 33 million Americans—10.5% of the total population—reported Irish ancestry in the 2013 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. This compares with a population of 6.4 million on the island of Ireland.

 

Three million people separately identified as Scots-Irish, whose ancestors were Ulster Scots who emigrated from Ireland to the United States but are considered Irish Americans in most historical surveys.  

A combination of the colors of the Irish and American flags, this tartan represents the huge number of Americans claiming Irish ancestry.
