dc.description.abstract Although proven, socio-demographic shifts do occur as a result of globalization and its economic, political and social externalities, nationalism in Ireland continues to honor its roots in sovereignty and independence and is ingrained in the fabric of society almost two generations into its post-colonial identity. Eurobarometer indicators, Irish survey data personally collected, and an analysis of the recent Irish rejection of the Lisbon Treaty demonstrate that the Irish people remain true to the mission of their forefathers, placing nationalist pride in their sovereignty, culture and religion, combating globalization’s push for further economic integration and the call for a more regionalized Irish identity. Despite absorbing the world’s most rapid, dramatic globalization process, the Irish people have spoken and show a continuation of traditional nationalism based on principles developed over a century ago. The question here addresses whether globalization transcends nationalistic roots or exacerbates them in the case of Ireland. en_US
