Border Voices: Cross-Border Identity in North-West Ulster

Jackson Feezell presents his research a the Ampersand Day showcase. Jackson Feezell, ’17 showcased his work at the Ampersand Day Showcase. When you think of Ireland, perhaps you think of shamrocks, leprechauns, and Guinness. What you may not know is that the island of Ireland contains two separate countries: the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Until 1998, Northern Ireland was a war zone, as Catholics and Protestants fought each other for control of the North. Now that the violence has ended, Feezell presented his research and asked how individuals view the limits of their communities.
