I consider myself Scots-Irish , but from the other way around as the explanations below. I was born in Scotland but from Irish immigrant grand-parents. I consider myself Sco…ts ( not Scotch , that term is used for products like whiskey etc , Scots is for people ) and have a strong Glasgow accent , however the community and culture I was brought up in was Irish , my Gaelic is Irish and not Scots. I have no conflict within myself regards this and live happily between the cultures. However there are a small minority of Scots who feel I should not be celebrating my Irish roots , or I should ' go back home ' . However they are a small-minded minority and ironically they are the same ones who feel more loyalty to the English Queen than to their own country. Go figure. The majority of the Scots-Irish moved to certain parts of Scotland during the same mass immigration that saw millions move around the world, especially to America , due to the Famine in Ireland which killed a million people. The racist element in Scotland , especially in Glasgow sing openly ' The famine is over , why don't you go home ' it seems that as long as we acknowledge our roots we are not welcome , even after many generations. I must stress though that this is a small minority of bigots much as you will find in any country and that the majority of Scots could not care less and are a welcoming people. The term Scotch-Irish is only what Americans call them. They are, in fact, Scottish people who were moved to the northern part of Ireland in order to force out the Catholics. Soon, however, they moved to the Americas due to religious persecution by the British as well as economic reasons. They were Protestant; Presbyterian rather than Anglican.) Short Answer: Because they wanted the Anglo-Americans to know that they were of Scottish ethnicity (and presumably Protestant) but admittedly had lived in Ireland before immigrating. Irish Catholics were unpopular and they wanted to 'distance themselves'. Yes I have heard this silly chant of ,why don't the Irish go home...I suppose the same thing could be asked of the Northern Irish loyalists--why don't they go home--after all King Billy is dead and gone.. However ,why don't they stay and why don't all the Scots(gaels--known as scotia from where the name Scotland derives) come back to Ireland after all that's where they originally hail from..so welcome home..

They are better known as Ulster Scots in the UK. In America there is a tendancy to over emphasise the Irish influence and that has led to the name Scotch-Iris h. It actuall…y refers to the Scots who travelled to settle Ulster and eventually moved to the American colonies.
Manhattan Sorry, wrong...

The scotch bonnet gets its name from it resemblance to the traditional Scottish cap: the tam or tam o'shanter. The tam is a flat round cap with a pompom or tassel in the cente…r. These caps or bonnets are commonly red. Some may say the fiery taste of the pepper is like some of the strong whiskys of Scotland. Scottish settlers were common in the Caribbean since the early 1600s. In fact, King Charles I appointed a Scotsman, James Hay, Earl of Carlisle, as Governor of the Caribbees in 1627. Some say that one of the sailors who sailed with Columbus was a Scotsman who stayed behind in Hispaniola. Prior answer: It looks like a traditional Scottish hat from the Robert Burns poem "Tam O'Shanter"
No. If it's Scotch whiskey and the substance caff e ine you mean.
The tape is actually adhesive tape. People commonly refer to it as scotch tape because of the popular brand name that manufactures and sells it. It morphed into common usage f…or all cellophane mucilage tape. In some countries it's called Sellotape after another popular brand.
Really, it could be called both. Both are correct.
