This chapter attempts to place a taxonomy and a structure on sectarian violence in county Cork. Bandon—notorious for its ‘ostentatious protestantism’—provides the focus. Celebrations of orangeism, heightened tensions at closely fought elections, and religious zealotry in various guises all ensured that Bandon could, at times, resemble more a northern town than its southern equivalents. Yet this stimulating analysis highlights the folly inherent in simply categorising localised outbreaks of confessional violence as ‘sectarian’ without fully exploring the factors that provoked them. Hence, sectarianism was not necessarily the trigger but often the consequence of violence.
