    Trad© unions/ despite their prominent position in Western society/ have received little attention in geographical studies/ a neglect typified by the Irish situation. This ommission appears all the more remarkable given that the spatial patterns of trade union organisation/ as evidenced by branch structure/ provide useful material for examination as it may be assumed that any trade union/ at a given point in time/ will portray distinctive spatial characteristics. These will depend on what sections of the workforce the union organises/ where these workers are predominantly located/ the level of organisation of the union itself and the level of organisation of competing unions.
