What do the people of Ireland called the United States? "America"? "The U.S." or both? What do you call the United States?

Both. "America" is the shortened colloquil name, and 'The United States of America" is the formal name. "US, "USA" "The States" are also other nicknames for our country. I, like most people use them interchangeably.

erm a variety of names really. Remember I'm speaking anecdotally here.

"The States" is probably the most commonly used colloqualism. "America" is generally synonomous with the USA. "American" would tend to mean a citizen of the US and would be most commonly used, along with "Yanks".

AS you well know there are very close ties between our towen countries so probably not unusual that there is some shared terminology. We would never refer to a canadian or mexican as an American... wouldnt want to insult them LOL

That said we would identify South Americans as such, mainly because were not overly familiar with all the coutries there and its easier to batch them together.
