He does have Irish ancestry by all accounts, although I'm not sure how far back it goes. Max Banjo, from the Lounge, told him in Vegas how posters on ESB had taken to calling him "Irish" Andre Ward. He found it funny and acknowledged his Irish background.

Although I agree with whomever said he identifies with black culture... He's no Mickey Ward-type character.

What about Irish Australians? Les Darcy is the greatest Irish fighter of all time. Also Ned Kelly great bareknuckle champion.
