I've lived here 18 years but yet I'm 'a foreigner'

Living in Ireland for the past 18 years, what do I call myself? A foreigner or an Irish with brown skin?
How have I contributed to my second home where I have decided to bring up my children and, if left in peace, die of old age.
Today I was shopping in Lidl when a well-dressed woman walked up to me and in a cool, collected voice said to me "I can't see any Irish people in this country anymore!"
