How come you have deleted my edit? It is public and notorious that Raul Alfonsin Foulkes was an outstanding Irish-Argentinian personality, since his mother was Irish and he was the first democratic President of the argentinian Nation since Democracy's rebirth in 1983. Kindly reconsider and include it, as it should be. Please note that I am contributing to improve your article. Thank you.--126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:24, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
- Might be because you lifted a lot of content directly from a copyrighted source (http://www.buzzle.com/editorials/3-18-2005-67281.asp), which is usually not a good idea, unless you are Roberto Dario Frassinetti (the author) and wish to make that content free to use. Moreover, the tone of the edit was not very encyclopedic (it was a personal essay of the author). The size of the Irish community in Argentina looks very high, contradicts the figures in the rest of the article, and there's no indication where the author got it from; that is, he's not a reliable source. Argentina has never conducted a comprehensive census of communities by ethnic or national origin. —Pablo D. Flores (Talk) 23:21, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
There is a clarin arcticle too, where an irish organization estimate the same number i can't find it right now. I'll post it later.
Anyway, the numeorus schools and the st. patrick's celebrations iin many irish communities are a known facts i'll post sources if you think is needed.
Pablo, you have done a great job in the Argentinian articles, but i wonder why are these articles about different ethnicities in the country called settlements and not simply Irish-Argentinians, Italian-Argentinians, etc. I mean it makes more sense in the anglophone world imo. Besides most immigrants (including most Irish like in this case) went to work to the cities and didn't built "settlements" or close communities.
- Can the page creator make a page on Irish, Scottish and English settlement in Chile? The number of British immigrants to Chile is fairly small, but parts of that country (Punta Arenas is one example) have villages and towns of people, Chileans, but of mostly Anglo-British descent. The moderate-sized British community in Brazil are worth mentioning, like the 40,000 Irish-Brazilians of São Paulo are involved in their city and country's socio-political life. But it's clear that more British immigrants (plus the Irish and Scots-Irish before Ireland acheived independence in 1922) were focused on the Southern Cone region of South America, due to economic reasons and the climates aren't tropical, but much like the weather of the British Isles. 188.8.131.52 05:26, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
Che Guevara Lynch
Well, he was half Irish half basque wasn't he? So he would be of irish descendent at least it could be mencioned... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs) 03:13, 14 July 2007 (UTC)
- Che Guevara was an Irish Argentine. He was born in Argentina with a mixed Basque and Irish heritage. I myself am a Punjabi Australian, but I'm also half-Slavic, so that makes me a Serb Australian, Slovenian Australian and Russian Australian as well. That's why he's also on the Basque Argentine page.

I have removed Valeria Lynch from the list since that is her artistic name and her real name is María Cristina Lancelotti. On the other hand, I have added Benito Lynch, a famous argentinian writer with the same family roots as Che Guevara. Done by Tomas Lynch on January 9th, 2010. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 13:20, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
José Luis "Tata" Brown
I have removed José Luis "Tata" Brown from the list as I have checked with SILAS (Society for Irish Latin American Studies) and he is in fact Scottish, with no Irish roots. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Blinkfan12 (talk • contribs) 14:43, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Why are English Argentinians mentioned in the "related ethnic groups" section? If your going to mention them, should you mention all other European groups too? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 13:35, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
