This introductory chapter provides an overview of the main themes covered in the book, which aims to apply interdisciplinary perspectives to re-examine the Irish in the South, calling into question received ways of understanding how Irish culture was transmitted into the South. Rather than seeing the Irish presence as “natural,” or a historic fait accompli, the following chapters see the presence as something historicized and unstable. Taken collectively, they offer a new framework for interpreting the Irish presence in the region.
