Am I of 'Irish Ancestry' or 'Irish Descent'

Hello, I was wondering if someone could give clarification to my question please?

I have a Paternal Irish Grandmother(my Father's mother), she and her family were from Ireland, but neither of my parents were born in Ireland, nor was I.

I also have a Paternal Irish Great Grandmother (my paternal grandfather's mother), she and her parents were from Ireland. So that's two Irish links within my direct paternal line.

I always thought I was of Irish descent but a friend of mine (who is a child of Irish parents but who was not born in Ireland) said that I was of Irish Ancestry whereas they are of Irish Descent... which is correct please?
