Irish-Scots are people in Scotland who are of immediate or traceably distinct Irish ancestry. Although migration between Ireland (especially Ulster) and Scotland has an established history - in both directions - owing to their close proximity, Irish migration to Scotland increased in the nineteenth century, and was highest following the Great Famine. In this period, the Irish typically settled in cities and industrial areas. * Sir Arthur Conan Doyle * James Connolly * Margaret Skinnider * Sir Billy Connolly * Gerry Rafferty * Brian Cox * George Galloway * Peter Capaldi * Gerard Butler * Susan Boyle *

  • Irish-Scots are people in Scotland who are of immediate or traceably distinct Irish ancestry. Although migration between Ireland (especially Ulster) and Scotland has an established history - in both directions - owing to their close proximity, Irish migration to Scotland increased in the nineteenth century, and was highest following the Great Famine. In this period, the Irish typically settled in cities and industrial areas. In the 2011 UK census, 1% of the population in Scotland identified their ethnicity as being 'White - Irish'. However, with centuries of heavy Irish immigration to Scotland, it is generally believed to be over 1.5 million people may have some Irish blood, even if very distantly. The same census states the number of Catholics in Scotland as 15.9% of the population, of whom many have an Irish background. * Sir Arthur Conan Doyle * James Connolly * Margaret Skinnider * Sir Billy Connolly * Gerry Rafferty * Brian Cox * George Galloway * Peter Capaldi * Gerard Butler * Susan Boyle * Rosemary McKenna Famous Irish-Scots include socialist revolutionary James Connolly, author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, left-wing politician George Galloway, actors Sean Connery, Brian Cox, Peter Capaldi and Gerard Butler, musicians Gerry Rafferty, Maggie Reilly, Jimme O'Neill, Claire Grogan and Fran Healy and stand-up comedians Billy Connolly and Frankie Boyle. The term Irish-Scots should not be confused with Ulster-Scots (sometimes known as Scots-Irish), a term used to denote those in the Irish province of Ulster who are descended from Lowland Scots who settled there in large numbers during the Ulster Plantation and subsequently.
