The neighborhood I grew up in was mainly Irish at one time but was kind of mixed but close by there were areas of primarily Polish or Italian kids and they stuck together. They were all working class. In a stretch of about 10 blocks there were three RC churches--Polish, Italian and Irish and they all competed against each other. They all had different schools. I was RC as well but I went to public school. The east side of town was primarily black. It was tribal wherever you went and you just didn't go walking around someone else's neighborhood.
Is this something to be proud of?
