The socio-political influence that makes up the threads of Northern Irish club football

The socio-political influence that makes up the threads of Northern Irish club football

We return to Northern Ireland in the company of Ben Roberts to explore the various clubs based there and examine how history, location and fan base have formed the backdrop to their identity. Allegiances to either unionist or nationalist causes, Protestant or Catholic faith, and family heritage all play a part in the interweaving threads of political influence that join together to make up the fabric of the region and both define and refine the identity of the football clubs there.
