Over 35 million people in the United States today have Irish ancestry, that's over 12% of the population. Irish immigrants were a driving force in building this country's canal systems and railroads. Irish-Americans worked in the mining industry and shipyards, helped form police forces and firefighting brigades in our cities, became active in politics and social reform, and bravely fought as members of the armed forces.
These items honor the Irish immigrants who helped make the United States of America what it is today. The symbols of Ireland are combined with those of the United States. Irish shamrocks represent the natural beauty of Ireland, the Statue of Liberty symbolizes the hope of immigrants coming to a new land, and the American eagle and Irish harp both symbolize the independent spirit of the Irish-American people.
