1820 blog on Scots of Irish descent

Young Irelander’s call for Scottish and Welsh nationalist blogs on the Scottish Catholics – Bulwark of the Union? thread has helped draw us to the attention of 1820.org.uk.

This blog named after The Scottish Insurrection of 1820 has picked up some of the themes from the above mentioned post.

It’s incredible the amount of fourth and fifth generation Scots of Irish descent who would scream for self-determination, bridle at every act of the British State, who know their Irish history inside out but couldn’t give a hoot about Scotland. Perhaps it’s more complicated though. Scottish regiments have been cynically used in Northern Ireland for the last thirty years.

Well worth a look.
