    Abstract

    This paper examines whether Irish sociology represents a distinct "national" sociology in terms of its empirical work and theoretical program.I began by situating this paper within existing scholarship on the history of Sociology in Ireland and then examine the social forces that have crucially shaped or misshaped the discipline in Ireland. I also address the imprint left by this history on the orientation of the discipline today.
