    "Them" who?

    The child is a citizen of the USA with Irish heritage.

    The parents started as Irish citizens, but might or might not (their choice) have become naturalized citizens of the USA.

    If your parents are Irish nationals, then it means their child is 100% American because of birthright US citizenship and 100% Irish if they apply for Irish citizenship based on their Irish parents

    Assuming the 'someone' has a US passport, or at any rate hasn't meanwhile taken on some other nationality, then that someone is a US citizen, and if they want to be specific, they are an American of Irish descent.
