Irish? Yes. Catholic? No. Most of my Irish ancestors were Presbyterians.

This thread again?

Anyway, still yes, although it's pretty negligible when compared to my Southern Baptist ancestry

Yes a little bit, but it's mixed with Irish Protestant (Anglo-Irish Church of Ireland Anglicans) ancestry and it's the Irish Protestant identity my mom's family took.

Not that I know of.

edit-Certainly some very distant cousins.  A distant ancestor had a brother move to Ireland sometime after 1066.

Yes. My whole mother's side

My dad's side is both Scottish Gaelic having came from Ireland at one point and Ulster Protestant in that they came from Ireland having originally came from Scotland having originally came from Ireland.

Which demonstrates it's all meaningless Tongue

Yes, though it is small enough (1/16th or something like that) that I would not usually find it worthy of mentioning.  It is far outnumbered by Swedish and especially German.

Yes, and the vast majority of my ancestry (~80-90%) is Irish Catholic.

Nope. Not at all, and supposedly my genealogy contains traces of all sorts of European ancestry.

No. I have Catholic ancestry though.

All white people do, since before the 16th century everyone in Europe was Catholic.

I have 20th century Catholic ancestry. About a quarter.

Also that statement is not correct. The Sami tribes in northern Scandinavia were not Christianized until the 18th century and were converted to Lutheranism. And much of Russia wasn't Christianized until after the Schism.

Yes, quite a bit, but I don't particularly ~identify~ with that side of my family.

Not to mention people from Jewish backgrounds (if you consider European Jews white, which not everybody does). Even plenty of Gentile families today are descended primarily from Jews who converted to Russian Orthodoxy or the Church of England or something a couple of centuries back.

This has always been an interesting topic to me.  The closest Jewish friend I have would probably consider himself "White" but would be very clear that "European ancestry" speaks to something completely separate from any Jewish groups - presumably going more into ethnolinguistic group divisions of Indo-European vs. Afro-Asiatic.

No, however, I do make a point of wearing something green on St. Patrick's Day.
