An Orange Diaspora

An Orange Diaspora

(p.286) Chapter 8 An Orange Diaspora
Faith, Fraternity and Fighting
Liverpool University Press

This chapter attempts to tease out more on the theme of social communication and networking, and specifically reviews the comparative dimensions of the Orange diaspora. The diaspora of Orangeman was centrally concerned with the political fate of the homeland. Protestant migrations provided for a relatively strong Orange Order. The Order offered an institutionalised framework with which to describe the cultural dialogue that went on between migrants and their homeland. Marching culture and social violence affected the way the wider world viewed the Order. The data showed that the Diaspora was a thing of multiple identities and that Protestants continued to be a significant component of the migration from Ireland long after the classic eighteenth-century phase of Scotch-Irish emigration to the American colonies. Orangeism presented the sort of web of associationalism and religious camaraderie that the other part of the Irish Diaspora found in Catholicism and nationalism.
