True, due to being born in England, but both his parents were Irish, and they returned to Ireland not long after he was born.

[edit to add]

MacGowan was born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England. His parents, both Irish[1], lived in many parts of the south-east of England, including Brighton and London. Soon after his birth MacGowan's mother returned to Ireland, where he spent the next six years of his life at his mother's family home in Carney, near Nenagh, County Tipperary. He returned to England where he attended Holmewood House Preparatory School at Langton Green, Tunbridge Wells.
