This oral history examined the relationship between Protestants and Catholics and the notion that southern Protestants are somehow not really Irish. The data set highlights that there are still underlying tensions between the confessions based on 'memories' of events long buried in the past. Oral history interviews with representatives of both confessions, look at various aspects of everyday life in today's Republic - education, marriage, segregation, Irish language, social life. The data-set comprises of over a hundred interviews conducted throughout Ireland.
