 H-Net Review: Niall O Dochartaigh on Irish America and the Ulster Conflict   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)

The arguments which condemn Irish-American involvement of any kind in the politics of Northern Ireland are closely related to more general arguments against the involvement of "diaspora" communities in the affairs of their "homelands." In several current situations of conflict the malevolent influence of diaspora communities is condemned as a significant factor in perpetuating conflict.
In Ireland, as in many other conflict situations around the world, the diaspora supporters of paramilitary anti-government organisations were among the first to use the internet to publicise their causes and to use it as an activist tool.
