>>7632258 Pretty much English were protestants (there were Irish protestants such as Bram Stoker) and the Irish were Catholics. Their hatred of each other stemmed because of their difference of religion (who the head of each church was), but also because of the ethnicity of each religion's followers. I recommend reading the wiki page or watching a documentary on the troubles or just on the history of Ireland in general to get a better idea on Joyce.
>>7632276 no the religion is not important. it's the power structures that surrounded the religion. protestantism is to catholicism is what existentialism is to christianity. basically the merchant class started to be a thing and money was suddenly important. so suddenly the whole of europes merchants start going, uh, fuck you, im not obligated to do shit for the king, I have money and he should pay me for my services, invisible hand of the market ect. protestants were pro-merchant. catholics were pro-monestary/feudal system way back when. so measures had to be introduced to weaken the catholics by making them dirt poor and into literal niggers. taking their land away, heavy taxation, banning them from public institutions and education. this made them all crazy dirty niggers. and if you ever meet an alcoholic irishman, you will understand that they are basically complete niggers and why that is.
