Culture, Conflict, and Migration: The Irish in Victorian Cumbria

Front Cover
Liverpool University Press, 1998 - History - 237 pages
Examining some of the most important themes in the social and cultural history of Irish ethnicity and migration, this study concentrates on those who settled in Victorian Cumbria. In later 19th-century Cumbria, Irish settlers were more noticeable than in any region outside Lancashire and Tyneside. These Irish were overwhelmingly from Ulster, with many Protestants among them, which had enormous repercussions for the culture of Irishness as it was manifest in these new communities.
