If you are Irish and not called Patrick/Patricia, do you think that being referred to as a 'Paddy' is abusive?
I personally do not! And I doubt many under 50s do!
Also do you think calling St. Patrick's Day, "Paddy's Day" is wrong?
A poll a few years ago, over on another well known site, which is probably and understandably not possible to link to, suggested and even split more or less!
