This article presents the summary of the paper, Ethnic Conflict in the North East of England: The Case of the Irish Immigrants, presented at the Irish in British Labour History conference, held on March 21, 1992 in Liverpool, England. The absence of large-scale rioting cannot be taken to mean that inter-communal relations were harmonious and the case argued here is that the evidence strongly supports the hypothesis that English-Irish relationships in the case of certain sections of the working class in both communities in the North East reflected the same tensions evident elsewhere. A necessary but not sufficient condition for the understanding of the social phenomena is to establish what the facts appear have been. However, it is abundantly clear that monocausal explanations of ethnic conflict are inadequate.
