Likely as I was always told I'm Irish rather than Scots. Johnson aka Mac Ian, and considering the time frame, a lil place called Glencoe.
In our (USA) history, the first Irish immigrants where Protestants. They would call themselves Scottish to separate them from the later Irish immigrants who where Catholics. Not so much religion, but more pro or anti Crown.

This may be the gayest thread yet. Men in skirts=gay.

Go to Scotland or Ireland with your American accent and tell them all about your "ancestry". You'll get laughed out of the pub. Great people and very friendly, and I had a great time in their pubs, but they told me there's nothing more ridiculous than some American thinking they're Irish... :rolleyes:

And don't feed me that "I'm proud of my heritage" crap either. :hmm:

Do those Kilts come in Multicam? :-" :sick:

Erin is an Anglo-English version of Ireland. Commonly used in The States to refer to here as Old Ireland.

The term 'Erin Go Bragh' or 'Erin Go Braugh' is an Anglo-English mispelling when translated from the original Gaeilge/Irish. The form Éireann is also used.

The correct term for Ireland as Ghaeilge is: ÉIRE

ÉIRE GO BRáCH
or
Éireann Go Brách :p

Nice. Our families fought together then, my mother is a MacGregor.



Ah, I thought you meant you were actually Scottish.

edit: I just thought about this, via Erin? Ulster?
My Grandfather was a McNee. The MacGregor clan is our parent clan. Scottish McNees wear the MacGregor tartan and crest.
