orange Irish are mainly protestants who see themselves as british, they are descended from English and scottish planters who arrived in Ireland in the 17th century. The meaning behind orange is the orange order which celebrates the battle of the boyne in 1690 when king William of orange (protestant) defeated king James (catholic). Green Irish are mostly roman catholic and see themselves as Irish. They are descended from Irish natives who have always lived in Ireland. Green is the general colour of Ireland and this is why they are called the green Irish.

Scottish vs. Irish Ireland and Scotland are two separate and distinct geographical regions with different historical and cultural backgrounds, and with separate governments. … More input: Scottish people come from Scotland, and Irish people come from Ireland.Religion is a major difference: most Scots are Presbyterians; most Irish are Catholics. The Catholic minority in Scotland is largely Irish in origin. The Presbyterians of Northern Ireland are mostly Scottish in origin. The reason there are so many Presbyterians in Scotland is because of the 1707 act of Union,The Cromwell Invasion, and forced conversion of Scottish Catholics by the covenanters.Scotland and Ireland share a common culture. Many Scottish and Irish share common surnames. A good deal of these begin with Mc or O.The languages are different, although they share some common roots. An example is the word cuan. In Irish it means harbor, but in Scottish it means ocean. Scottish Gaelic is spoken mainly in the northern regions of Ireland, were as Irish Gaelic is spoken mainly in the western regions.

I do not think catholics are called green. The orangemen are mostly protestants and they get their name from William of orange
im Irish and to my knowledge, the difference between a republican and nationalist is similar to that of a loyalist and unionist. generally speaking, republicans and nationalis…t have the same beliefs, (a united Ireland) however , nationalist seek a united Ireland, all 32 counties free from british rule, through peaceful means whereas republicans are the same, except a small number of them are willling to use force for this cause.
An Irish Jig has a 6/8 Tempo, while an Irish Reel has a 4/4 Tempo. An Irish musician put it to me this way: If you can say "Black and Decker, Black and Decker" to the music, t…hen it's a reel. If you can say "rashers and sausages, rashers and sausages," it's a jig.
This question is too broad to answer sufficiently in a few lines. Its on par with asking " whats the difference between " Americans" and "English"? However in a nutshell Irela…nd and England are two separate nations with different traditions and cultures. For example, the Irish are mainly Catholic while most English people are Protestant. Irish culture is also heavily influenced by Gaelic/Celtic traditions i.e. Gaelic sports, language, literature etc. Ireland is a Republic, England is Democratic monarchy. The two nations also have different currencies, Irish use Euro, and English use pound sterling. The Irish have a history of being the oppressed, while English have a history of being the oppressors.
A unionist supports Northern Ireland being under British rule and a Republican wants it free of British rule.

Its usage continued in the Victorian era, when it described a class composed mostly of Church of Ireland adherents who had adopted many English customs. Irish Gaelic (correct)/Irish Language or Gaelige (gail-igg) is the language that can be spoken in Ireland.

Theres no such thing as Ulster Irish as Ulster is in Ireland north and south so don't mean to sound cocky but you must have made that up :S secondly Ulster-Scots is the correc…t term , Scots-Irish is an American word that's never heard over here , so theres your answer ulster Irish doesnt exist there just Irish , Ulster-Scots are the protestant people living in the north east of the island , in the 6 counties that make up northern Ireland, there faith and political outlook sets them apart from us who are catholics and known as just Irish , but the island has been divided into 2 parts , the small part is northern Ireland and the much larger part is the republic which has a county more northerly than northern Ireland , but were still called the south , but to us down here im from dublin in the east Galway is in the west cork in the south and belfast in the north , so the four provinces marks that ulster=North leinster=east connaught=west munster=THE real SOUTH .. so the differences between Scots Irish and ulster Scots is Scots Irish are Americans of Irish and scottish desent and mostly catholic ulster-Scots are the protestant people living in northern Ireland they have there own language and traditions just as we do, because were both so proud of our culture , we spent years killing each for control of the island so the majority took the larger part and the minority took the smaller part , hopefully someday it will reconcile and we can all live peacefully on this island.. heres a list of protestant traditions in Ireland the church of Ireland and prespetrian church of Ireland, which is an Anglo church all over Ireland especially in Ulster The 12th of July , which they celebrate there victory in the battle of the boyne Irish Football Association Orange Parades and marches flute bands and bonfire night The Ulster-scot dialect just some of the traditions of the Ulster-Scot people hope this helps and sorry about the spelling... and can i suggest wikipedia , it would make better sense than me , and explain anything and everything you want to know peace outttttttt :D
Well obviously they are different occasions. Weddings are happy occasions, funerals are sad occasions. People come together and celebrate the wedding or at a funeral to comm…iserate with the relatives and celebrate the life of the person.
The question asks about Scots-Irish, not Scotch-Irish. This is an important distinction. Scots-Irish are Americans descended from Scots (Scottish) who migrated into Northe…rn Ireland about 200 years ago, give or take. Despite the widespread use of the term "Scotch" to refer to people, there are no people who are Scotch -- Scotch is whiskey. The Irish have essentially always been in either the Republic of Éire (Ireland) or in Northern Ireland. They did not migrate, and were never Scots to begin with.
They are both derived from Old Irish but are considered separate languages today. Some refer to Irish as 'Gaelic' especially overseas. For clarity they can be called 'Irish Ga…elic' and 'Scottish Gaelic'.
