Summary
March is Irish-American Heritage Month in USA as St. Patrick's Day falls on 17th March.

Congress proclaimed March as Irish-American Heritage Month in 1991, and the President issues a proclamation commemorating the occasion each year.

According the Census Bureau, 32.7 million U.S. residents claimed Irish ancestry in 2015. This number was more than seven times the population of Ireland itself (4.6 million). Irish was the nation's second-most frequently reported European ancestry, trailing German.
