Is he Irish or of Irish decent?

I know someone who's great, great grandfather was born in Ireland. Does that mean he's Irish or of Irish decent?

    Irish decent. If he wasn't born in Ireland or doesn't have Irish citizenship, he is of Irish decent.

    If you're asking about the grandfather he was Irish.

    Irish descent, if he's born and reared in any country other than Ireland.

    Irish, if he was born and reared in Ireland.

    Irish descent............. unless the 'someone' holds Irish citizenship themselves

    If he doesn't speak Gaeilge or Hiberno and has never lived in Ireland, he is of Irish descent.  "Decent" without the S means something completely different

    A good idea would be to find out where he was born.

    He is of Irish ancestry.
