The Scots Irish tag an easy way to say Irish Protestant.

All I care about is that Jackson has Irish heritage...so Jackson is an Irishmen and this reinforces the fact that Irish folks have helped to build America. And I know there are Irish Protestants, I'm sure those Irish Protestants are very friendly folk. I also do not buy the view that Irish folks were treated like dirt in the USA. It cant be the case ..it was blacks that suffered in the USA not "the Irish". I know that many Irish folks served on the Union side during the US civil war, JFK was a Mick. The list goes on and on, many of the Great Americans have either a Scottish or Irish background. I'm Scottish, Irish, and Italian.
