After having read, posted, read more and given up in the thread about using "American" as an exclusive term for a native of the USA, another question occurred to me (and the "link" between the two is the word "United" in the title of both nations)... A person from Northern Ireland is considered a UK national, but he/she shouldn't be called British (because Great Britain is only Scotland, England and Wales). Irish is no good either, since that probably means from the Republic of Ireland. I know they have to put up with being called "British" (at least in the passport), because there is nothing like UK-donian, or UK-ans.... Is there a better solution, maybe? Anyone from Ireland that wants to give us some light in this? Ta.
