I also hated myself for clicking Great Britain :-)

As an outsider, I'm curious about this. My (perhaps innacurate?) understanding was that "Great Britain" was more a geographical term referring to everything on the islands rather than a political boundary (as opposed to "UK" which is purely a political concept and includes some, but not all, of the countries on the same islands). Is that not enitrely correct? Or is that exactly the the part that's uncomfortable - that it's a "Country" field which lacks the actual country name and only offers a geographic collection in its place?

I am half English and half Irish (Kilkenny).

The English occupied / (occupy) Ireland and it was / (is) very unpopular. Hence an Irishman will not enjoy having to associate himself with his (former / current) occupiers.
