Is there typical facial features in people of Irish origin i’m talking about people of 100% Irish Origin not mixed with English Scottish and Welsh all 4 ethnicities don’t look the same unless they have mixed together.

How many people in England have both English and Irish ancestry.

A lot, especially in major cities on the coast (a lot of Irish came in to work in shipyards etc and had VERY large families). Liverpool in particular is almost more Irish than English. The same goes for Scotland – Glasgow (and to a lesser extent Edinburgh and Dundee) was flooded by Irish incomers a few decades ago.

True lots people in Liverpool have both Irish and English ancestry even English Irish and Welsh ancestry even English Irish Scottish and Welsh ancestry all 4 ancestries I bet there is not a single person in Liverpool that is 100% English but there is defiantly people in Liverpool that are 100% Irish.

There is defiantly people in Glasgow and Edinburgh that have both Irish and Scottish ancestry even English Irish and Scottish ancestry but defiantly not English Irish Scottish and Welsh ancestry I can’t think of any Scottish people that Welsh ancestry there is evidence of Welsh people living in Scotland but there is lots of English people and Irish people living in Scotland there is lots of Scottish people in North West Scotland that have Irish ancestry the Gaels from Ireland settled in North West Scotland.
