Orangeism in Scotland: Unionism, politics, identity, and football

Bradley J (2004) Orangeism in Scotland: Unionism, politics, identity, and football, Eire Ireland, 39 (1&2), pp. 237-261.

First paragraph: For almost two hundred years the Orange Institution has been a feature of the religious, social, and cultural life of West Central Scotland. Although a matter of some contention, the Order has developed a powerful political meaning in Scotland, affecting the political allegiances and identities of a wide variety of constituencies. Despite an Irish birth, the Orange Institution has at its core a uniquely Ulster-Scottish perception of both its own constitution and its function to British identity.
