    Chile is Irish?

    The Irish played a significant role in the LatAm wars of independence. He’s far from being the only one.

    Che’s last name was Lynch.

      Che’s father was quoted as saying “”the first thing to note is that in my son’s veins flowed the blood of the Irish rebels.” Actually went to an Irish pub in Prague called O’Che’s, good spot.

    Parts of Latin America drew parts of the same migrations that populated much of the the Northeast and Great Lakes regions during the late 19th century, including he later potato famines in Ireland. I was staying in southern Chile and walked through a Catholic cemetery nearby. It was like walking nrough he cemetery where some of my relatives are buried in Cleveland—Irish, Italian, Slovenian, and Croatian surnames.Latin America also drew Jewish, Chinese, and Japanese migrants.

    South America is far more diverse than some might think. Central America, not as much.
