Liverpool University Press

The first chapter examines the historical relationship between the United States and Northern Ireland, offering an overview of Irish-American relations throughout the 20th century with a particular focus on the period after the partition of Ireland. It looks at early US investment in Northern Ireland, an issue which would come to have great significance in later years. It also considers the role that US Presidents had in Ireland and Northern Ireland prior to the outbreak of the Northern Ireland conflict, and establishes the broader context to JFK’s famous 1963 visit to Ireland.

Keywords:   Irish American relations, President John F Kennedy, Arms smuggling, Internment without trial
