Irish Elizabeth McCalla was her given birth name, not a nickname. I know that because I know her son Kim.

My real name is Irish Egan. Irish isnt a nickname I got. It is on my SSC and everything. I found out about Irish Mccalla because she had the same name as me, and I thought that was cool. Shes really pretty and I liked her in Sheena. I just want to know why she got that nickname. I new she was really Irish, BUT is that the only reason why she got the nickname?
