This article presents the summary of the paper, Irish Catholicism in Liverpool Between the Wars, presented at the Irish in British Labour History conference, held on March 21, 1992 in Liverpool, England. Towards the end of the 1960s, it was still possible to pass close to sixteen Catholic parish churches in less than an hour's walk through the Scotland, Vauxhall and Kirkdale districts of Liverpool, England. Of the sixteen parishes functioning in the northern dockland area during the inter-war period, eleven were founded between 1845 and 1878. Throughout the inter-war period the Catholic population of the northern dockland area never fell below 95,000. The combination of elements of worship, schooling and social training upon individuals living within this tightly-knit and self-contained community contributed to what Gramsci would have called a common sense way of seeing things.
