This chapter examines the history of Irish immigration to America during the period from 1845 to 1880, the pattern of which was, during this period, influenced by four major events. These include the Great Famine, which led the more than a million Irish to migrate to America; the reduction in the protestant element in Irish America; the triumph of Irish nationalist ideology, which created an ethos of distinctiveness and techniques of group advancement; and America's rapid industrialisation, which provided new form and concentration to the expanded Irish migration.
