Help Me Understand

Why is it that when I tell people my family has Irish roots, or mention Irish music, or anything concerning the Emerald Isle, the person with whom I am speaking, almost without exception, responds with “AAAARRRR!”

I didn’t say I was a pirate!

I thought it was just me until I heard someone doing a really bad impression of an Irishman, and he did it too.

If anyone has any insight on this, please feel free to enlighten me.
