Overview

Does it still matter, which foot you dig with in today's Republic of Ireland? Outside the Glow examines the relationship between Protestant and Catholics in the context of the notion the southern Protestants are somehow not really Irish. From extensive interviews with representatives of both confessions, Heather K. Crawford demonstrates that there are still underlying tensions between the confessions based on the emotional legacy generated by events long buried in the past. By looking at various aspects of everyday life in today's Republic - education, marriage, segregation, Irish language, social life - she shows how residues of religious, ethnic and cultural tension suggest that true Irishness is Catholic, and that consequently Protestants - and other minorities - cannot have an authentic Irish Identity.
