Summary

In the history of southern Africa, the Irish are rarely mentioned as a distinct ethnic group. They are instead subsumed under larger categories such as ‘white’ or ‘English’. There was, however, a significant Irish Catholic presence in the region and especially in the Cape Colony. This chapter examines that community, its development, and its relationship to other groups, both European and indigenous.
