In case you've forgotten, a number of UK media outlets branded Paul Mescal and Andrew Scott British following their Emmy nominations.
This was met with a great deal of anger from the Irish people, who took to social media to set the record straight.
Derry Girls star Nicola Coughlin tweeted, 'Why is this still happening in 2020??'

Another social media user wrote, 'They’re not British actors. Paul Mescal & Andrew Scott are Irish.'
'There is no similarity, there is no comparison. Irish is Irish. British is British.'
It wasn't long before Paul got involved, and simply tweeted, 'I'm Irish.'
