I am an Irishman with an American father, born and raised in Dublin, and thanks to my mixed accent I am constantly being questioned on whether or not I am Irish, once a couple thought I was lying and asked me to name the suburbs of Dublin. Being Irish isn’t about the accent, that man had no right to say that to her.
