I basically agree with your post, but what you cite wasn't an example of a stereotype, it was outright hatred of the Irish Catholics. When the Irish fled Ireland for religious freedom & escape from discrimination in addition to avoid starvation at the hands of the Brits, they ran into similar conditions here in America, at the time run by White Anglo-Saxon Protestants.
Point being, a stereotype is one thing, more of less just words. Racial persecution & religious discrimination is something else, which is what most of the "off the boat" Irish had to deal with.
