The book printed in 1989 tells of their time in America but also in Canada,Australia and New Zealand. The fly-leaf of the book says .. A companion volume to the major Channel Four television series of the same name, the book offers a greater understanding of an often misrepresented people who have helped shape Western society and who now in their Ulster homeland face the greatest crisis of their existence.

Do any other groups besides the Ulster Scots have rights to that same homeland? Also what crisis(es) are the Ulster Scots facing? I imagine one is a low birth rate. Are there others?


Please note that I am not intending to be confrontational. Rather, I am genuinely interested in your positions.

"Scotch" is considered an ethnic slur. Correct term to use would be Scottish.

The Scots-Irish, or Ulster Scots were ethnically Lowland Scottish, English, with also Huegenot blood ( via 16th/17th centuary England),Welsh and I`m sure some Irish Catholic blood as well, so no, not really solely Scottish.

Yes, they do. Contrary to various opinions there has been no pressure to force other groups out of BU. There were three counties of Ulster lost to Eire but there was no campaign of murder or otherwise to force them into the other six counties.



Yes the birth rate plays a big part in the demographics of Ulster and Catholics being advised not to use contraceptives by their church increased the number of Catholics. Of course the immigration of Protestants to America,Canada, Australia and New Zealand also played a part in the demographics of the country.


We as a people have always been between a rock and a hard place. Even when we got to America it was the same.
