The tribe

by Caitríona Perry | 11 October 2019

From JFK to Trump, Irish American voters have played a pivotal role in US politics, but is their influence on the wane? The Tribe provides a definitive, clear-eyed look at Irish American voters.

Caitríona Perry explores the role of Irish Americans in the US political system. Once considered to be kingmakers in local and national elections, generations of assimilation and rising numbers of newer immigrants have diluted their power and influence. Leading Republicans and Democrats, including Senators, Congressmen and women, and Vice Presidents, explain that they no longer target a notional ‘Irish voting bloc’, that the concept has long faded. Many proud Irish American Republicans lay out why they align more with conservative ideals, despite the beliefs of some of their relations in Ireland that all Irish in America are Democrats. Caitríona also meets many of President Trump’s Green Army, who are Red and Green and Proud. This book is a modern chronicle of the politics of Irish America from early emigration to the present day, and explains what changing views and changing demographics mean for the future of Ireland’s political influence in the US.
