Linda: I am captured currently by Elliott's _The Catholics of Ulster_ and
am astonished to find that the "Irish Catholic" paradigm came so much later
into Ireland than I had imagined....with the "Devotional Revolution"
apparently, and the politization of the Catholic as "Irish" as compared with
the usurper Scots Presbyterian or English Anglican.
I do not know the date of the original "Scotch Irish Society" that banded
together in Columbia, TN, early in the 20th century but am wondering if news
from Ireland about the Catholic metamorphosis may have been influencial in
creating a need in this country for delineating the Protestant "Scotch
Irish" from the now more militant version of "Irish Catholic?"
I'm not sure I can really successfully articulate my question....except to
wonder whether the events of Northern Ireland reached further into the SI
culture of US than I had known before.
