We are also guilty of a fuzzy sense of Irish identity

I cannot understand the excitement this side of the Irish Sea as the British media continue to identify themselves Saoirse Ronan and Rachel Blackmore than Brits (“From Saoirse Ronan to Rachael Blackmore, why does Britain keep claiming Irish stars?” Independent.ie, Ciara O’Loughlin, March 24).

It’s not just the Brits who display a fuzzy sense of identity when dealing with Irish issues, we’ve mastered that trait ourselves. The British sport and entertainment industry routinely ranks Irish achievements as British achievements and acts accordingly by bestowing titles of peerage on leading Irish figures. By accepting these feudal decorations, the recipients objectively become part of the British establishment. These ‘gongs’ seem to be in great demand and are firmly established topics of conversation in the Irish Uriah Heeps social calendar.
