    There is very little sectarianism in Donegal these days. Polls show that 96% of Protestants there socialise with Catholics in their everyday lives compared with about 29% on both sides in NI. Also, most marriages in Donegal by Protestants are to Catholics. This shows the absence of the Northern-style segregation here. Indeed polls here show that many Donegal Protestants see themselves as Irish.

    How do you get from discimination against someone born in Northern Ireland to proclaiming sectarianism in Donegal, Mick.?

    One is birthplace -the other’s religion
