I don't consider 1829 to be eventually. That was actually before the peak in Irish immigration after the famine in the 1850's. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't that the point where anti-Irish sentiment really began to rear it's head?
I'm not sure what 1829 is in this conversation anymore, but if your point is that somebody was elected (1829 -- Jackson? Van Buren?) I'd again refer back to what I said about Obama.
And, I would think that anti-Irish sentiment did really grow after the 1850s, as you think -- which would mean an election decades earlier didn't in any way keep the prejudice from occurring.
(Sorry if I'm a little lost here, but this conversation was a bit old, and I'm not really up for going back and re-reading given that I don't think any of this makes what I said incorrect.)
