Nelson McCausland MLA (Democratic Unionist Party - Constituency: North Belfast). A personal blog in which I comment on a wide variety of issues, political, cultural, social, historical and religious. If something takes my attention, then I may well comment on it.

There is a very good article on The Historical Use of the Term 'Scotch-Irish' by Michael C Scoggins in which he demonstrates that Scotch-Irish is the traditional, historical and authentic name for the descendants of Ulster-Scots who settled in America.
Michael C Scoggins is the staff historian for the Culture and Heritage Museums in York, South Carolina, and research director of the Southern Revolutionary War Institute at the McCelvey Center. He is a member of the Scotch-Irish Society of the United States of America and the author of a number of books on American history.
