Immigrant from USA. Came over here with my parents in the 70's. My heritage is Irish on one side, Irish/Scottish on the other.
Does that make me Caucasian/Other?

How come Dutch going to Ireland in 11C? Probably both Catholic at that stage.

Don't see what religion had to do with it, uncless they were priests or nuns. England was catholic too at the time and much closer to the Netherlands.

Hence why Liverpool FC is my obsession and my number 1 sporting team. I even named my son after my favorite Liverpool player, Robbie Fowler. When people say Robbie Farah's mood depends on how Liverpool plays, I totally get it cause I'm EXACTLY the same way.

One of my brother's Irish Pommy in laws from LIverpool had a funeral of a young guy and it may have been conducted in a church but it was a Liverpool FC funeral. All the paraphernalia was Liverpool, a scarf draped the coffin on the way down. He was outfitted in their gear. The flowers were their colours.

I named my son after Charles Darwin and now as an adult he loves it.

Nah they family spread in northern England and my 12th great grandfather went to Ireland with Oliver Cromwell in 1642 and stayed there as a lord of the manor after the uprising was out down
