Proceeding from an analysis of the historical and religious context, this study demonstrates the reductionist nature of the two traditions model, highlighting instead the complexity of ethnic identities and cultural traditions.

It thus shows why attempts at reconciliation like the Good Friday Agreement of 1998, which seeks to promote the concept of a parity of esteem based on this identity model., are fraught with difficulties. Reflecting on the applicability of the concept of multiculturalism in the context of Northern Ireland, the author proposes a re-conceptualisation of Northern Irish culture along lines that steer clear of binary oppositions.

Mairead Nic Craith is Director of Research and Graduate Studies at the Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool.
