The Scots-Irish, also commonly called Scotch-Irish, are the descendants of the Ulster-Scots of Ireland that settled in the colonies and former colonies of Great Britain. The Ulster-Scots are lowland Scots from the English-Scottish border that settled in Ulster from 1610-1630.
The Ulster-Scots began migrating out of Ireland in the 1700's due to religious repression and economic circumstances. Most headed for what would be the United States and Canada, but some settled in Australia, New Zealand, and other colonies.
Famous Scots-Irish Americans include President Andrew Jackson, Sam Houston, Daniel Boone, and Davy Crockett.
This category is for websites that deal with the Scottish culture outside of Scotland itself.
