Is the correct Irish for "I am of Ireland" = Is mise na Éirinn? I have to be curtain.

más é do thoil é, cuidigh.

No.
Is de Éireann mise

But clearer
Is as Éireann mise - I am from Ireland (implies you were born there)
Is de bhunadh na hÉireann mise - I am of Irish descent
even simpler
Is Gael mé - I am a Gael

I knew I was wrong.
Go raibh maith agat, Aonghus
