I’m not sure if it is because I live in a predominantly unionist town but I always find it curiously interesting that I am described as being “Irish” as a matter of course. The subtext is that those using the description are differentiating themselves and would probably describe themselves as “British”. I am mildly offended but not seriously. The term is used deliberately as a means of differentiation. I am sure of this. Is this an unique experience?
