Northern Ireland, History, 1969-1994, Protestants, Catholics, Mormons
The conflict in Northern Ireland between Catholics and Protestants places Mormons, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in an impossibly difficult position, being shunned by both sides. Claudia Harris tells of her research in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland in the 1980s, staying the homes of Mormons and hearing of their experiences. Many Mormons were serving in various security forces and thus were paramilitary targets. Harris tells the stories and explores the cultural mindset of Irish Mormons.
