There is an {{Irish Roots}} sticker, but you do NOT want to use it.  It is a project sticker and places a profile "under management of a member of the Irish Roots Project".

Thanks for the heads up Melanie, so far that hasn't happened yet with the German roots stickers I added. I wish they didn't have to go in a category when used.

Dear Patricia,

  There is an Irish sticker: {{Ireland_Native}}

I found it on the Irish Roots project page.  With all the recent changes for Projects and stickers, It is hard to know which are still valid.  I wonder if there is a table to look these up on?

I know there is one for Italian Roots, as that is my husband's other heritage. It's a safe bet there are others still active.  -NGP

Well I want it for my mother (Layman-280), who is by no means an Irish native but did have an ancestor born in Ireland.
The Australia sticker needs to have the word "Roots" added to be consistent with the others. ;-)

Then you need the unintuitive {{Irish Clans}} sticker.

For that matter there are several that are missing the word "Sticker" as well. e.g. Danish.

There are several that use the country name, and more that use the demonym. Example: England vs. English.

It would be great if there was a policy to have consistency.
Scotland has {{Scottish Ancestor Sticker}}.
Thanks, Eowyn!  That will help.  -NGP
