questions...[edit]

isn't Fergie supposed to be on here? aren't the fergusons the Scotch-Irish royal family? are the fergusons part welsh? how many different spellings are there?!?!?!?! :-* —Preceding unsigned comment added by Snick's Friend (talkcontribs) 22:29, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Irish connection?[edit]

The lede throws in reference to "Scottish-Irish" (easter-egging the link, though), and there's an "Ulster-Scottish" category. No reference or rationale for either. I don't really follow the logic of either: are these a reference to Planters, to the Dál Riata connection of the notional origin of the name, or just because it's ultimately Gaelic? None of these would seem persuasive (if any were even asserted). 84.203.43.181 (talk) 03:20, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
