Danny is the son of Elizabeth A. “Betty” (Lopes) and Daniel Wood.

Danny has said that his family is Portuguese, from the Azores (his mother was of Portuguese descent). On his left arm, Danny has a tattoo which is sometimes said to be a mix of a Portuguese flag and an Irish flag, representing his heritage. Danny’s father is said to be of mostly Irish descent.

Is there any sources stating that his father has Irish ancestry, apart from claims by individuals?

No, but given that tattoo and his birthplace, it’s very likely those claims are accurate. Why else tattoo both countries as a joint flag on your person?

That is, if it really is an Irish flag. I have only found obscure pictures of it.

@follers

even Johnny Depp has a Cherokee tattoo.

Depp thinks he has Cherokee ancestry. Are you saying Wood thinks he has Irish ancestry but doesn’t?
