A little light on quoting historical fact, but is still a pretty good baseline and a direction to look for information.
“The Scots-Irish that settled in the region came here partly as a result of English political and religious domination, as the Scots were “imported” to the Northern Ireland province of Ulster to help tame some of the rebellious spirit of the Irish. The Presbyterian denomination, as well as the Roman Catholic Church, often clashed with the Anglican Church of England, and the echoes of that conflict still rage today between Protestant and Catholic Irish.
As Presbyterians were pushed out of government power, they began looking for religious freedom, and American offered a fresh start both spiritually and economically.”
Figured it was some interesting stuff on this day. Happy St. Patty’s Day all!
