Cochrane, Feargal E. (2007) The End of the Affair: Irish Migration, 9/11 and the evolution of Irish-America. Nationalism and Ethnic Politics, 13 (3). pp. 335-366. ISSN 1557-2986Full text not available from this repository.
This article examines the changing relationship between Ireland and the United States in the 21st Century and argues that the new security climate within the US following the 9/11 attacks (combined with long-term social changes in both countries) is having a major impact on the relationship between Ireland and the US. The central argument is that Irish-America is undergoing a period of fundamental change, caused by a combination of short-term political factors linked to the attacks of 11 September 2001 and their aftermath, together with longer-term economic and social trends taking place in Ireland which has greatly reduced the flow of migrants from Ireland to the US.
