The "Northern Irish" are not an ethnic group, in that Northern Ireland is populated (in addition to a small number of recent immigrants) with native Irish, the Scots Irish (a/k/a Ulster-Scots)and the Anglo-Irish, all three of whom already have articles. The assertion that the "Northen Irish" are a single "ethnic" group is merely an attempt to advance the political ideology of unionism. Windyjarhead 14:42, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
This AfD nomination was incomplete. It is listed now. DumbBOT 20:13, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
Delete per nom and (no) context of article. Cbrown1023 20:31, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
Strictly speaking, qualifies under A3 as a speedy deletion candidate. However, since we're here, redirect at closing bod's discretion to Scots Irish, Ulster-Scots or Anglo-Irish as suggested in nomination. Personally I think the creator of the article was trying to help rather than pushing a POV. ➨ЯEDVERS 21:14, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
I think redirecting to a single group would probably be a bad idea: it might be mistaken for pushing a POV by suggesting that one of these groups is the "true" Northern Irish people. However, if there isn't one already, this might be quite usefully converted into a disambiguation page that merely linked to the existing articles on each of the major groups within the population of Northern Ireland; if there's already such a page, then this should be redirected there. — HaelethTalk 23:03, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
Delete. Not an appropriate title for the proposed content. Zarbat 05:29, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
Delete. Silly article, not least for proclaiming the existence of such a people as indigenous!!!! The author of that sentence has no idea what the word means. (Yes, I'm Scots-Irish; I can still spot a POV violation when I see one, and I agree with Windyjarhead that this is surely one!) --Orange Mike 15:59, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
