Why are Irish people so cool and why arent there more of them in this country?

I remember when the U.S. first started there were a lot of Irish immigrants who helped build this nation. Then all of a sudden its like they dissapeared. Maybe they went back to Ireland or something.

Update:

I had an Irish friend growing up and he and his family were humble.

    The first generation were Irish; the second generation were Irish-American. Beyond that - they're just Americans with some Irish heritage.
