In New York City, free from British constraints, they began to agitate anti-British sentiment among Irish immigrants who now blamed the British government for everything, including their current misery in the slums of lower Manhattan. Instead of signifying our home, and supporting our shared identity, the natural environment has been transformed into a site for anxiety, uncertainty and alienation. The experimental legacy of sixties art movements such as Fluxus began to be felt in a number of the more openly experimental writers, and as the 1980s moved into the 1990s so-called Language Poetry began to enrich the mix.

However, if we take the Irish Free State’s government as being in someway representative of ‘nationalist Ireland’, then we have to acknowledge that following other liberal democracies, including Britain and France, it too observed a strict non-intervention policy during Spain’s civil war. The venerable Irish-folk band is without question the quietest band on the list, but what The Dubliners lack in edge they make up in durability. Everyone loves the British & Irish Lions.
