His entire bloodline is 100% Irish. Like Matthew Macklin he's an Irishman born in England. The only thing English about him is his accent. And, his father's from Galway, not Belfast, even then, Northern Ireland isn't part of Great Britain. And even if it was, because of The Good Friday Agreement people from the North can declare themselves what ever they want and Fury obviously considers himself Irish.
