Okay let's say my mother is Irish and my dad is Spanish (example), and I was born in Spain rather than Ireland for that reason my nationality is Spanish... now can I change it to Irish? is it possible to switch the roles?

I have been debating that in my head for quite sometime.
I would say this, be whatever you want to be. But there is one qualification, you must be connected to that place. If you want to be Irish, go for it.
But if you wanted to be Canadian (for some doltish reason), I would say you couldn't: what is your connection?
This is an interesting subject. I would restrain from picking one nationality: it has consequences. By picking one, are you not cutting off a part of your being - that being the Spanish part.
For example, my father is Croatian and my mother is German-Dutch. I was born in the Netherlands.
During the cool seasons, I engage more with my Dutch side. During the warmer months, I engage more wit my Croatian side. Im American 24/7, because America is the best.
That isn't to say I ignore them during some seasons, I just don't feel it as strongly. It is hard to explain.
You only have so many years - do what you please.1
