There is no way of knowing since his profile is entirely unsourced. The only "source" there is a FamilySearch tree ID; the FamilySearch tree is not a source, and there are no actual sources cited on the relevant entry that serve to confirm any of the claimed details of this person's birth and death dates and locations: https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/details/LTZW-F15

Also, people travelled between Ireland, Scotland and northern England looking for work. You need to look at his parents and grandparents.

With the "Mc" at the start of his surname I suspect he is Irish, otherwise, if he were Scottish, it would be "Mac".

Actually this is a misconception. These names can go either way.
