GUEST,Jack Campin Important new article on Cecil Sharp (107* d) RE: Important new article on Cecil Sharp 02 May 19


Not until the late 19th century. More recently the label has mainly been used by racial fantasists and Protestant bigots.

I tried a number of different ways to search for "Scotch-Irish" on the Google Ngram Viewer - there is no obvious best form to use, and the results you get depend on details of spaces, dashes and quotes. Not much sign of the phrase before 1860 however you slice it, and it only takes off after WW1.
