I am trying to say that 'I am Irish' (fem.) so would I say 'Soy irlanesa' or 'Soy una irlandesa'?

You'd say "Soy irlandés" (I am Irish).

is this masculine or fem?
"Irlandesa" is also correct for a woman.
so would it be "soy una irlandesa" or just Soy irlandesa?
"Irlandés" is masculine or feminine noun. It can mean "irishwoman" or "irishman."
Get rid of the "una." It's just "soy."
thank you :)

I am Irish (adjective) = Soy irlandesa'

I am a Irish woman (noun) = Soy irlandés. (invariant according to our dictionary)

I think you should go with Marianne's answer. She's correct.
