haha the funny thing is @OP that you are not getting the answers from actual Irish or English people, but Americans, who still believe that because their ancestors of 300+ years ago make them Irish or English today.
Anyway from a REAL resident of the British Isles you shall have the answer.
Mainly because Ireland was Catholic and England at the time of the reformation and all that was, Protestant, everyone from Wales to Scotland, and England as well as Ireland that was Catholic was no longer allowed by the law to be so.
600,000 Irish were murdered so you can see why they don't get on too well.
I am English (with Irish ancestry). Born in Manchester, lived in Manchester and then London 'til the age of 21.
And now I live in Alberta, which .... is not in America. .:thumbsup:
