Rethinking the role of identity in these terms prompts necessary revisions. For instance, a government-funded body such as the Cultural Traditions Group does not, as I have previously argued, seek to provide ‘interpellation into the practices of the bourgeois state’ for dissident and residual sectarian cultural formations (see R. Kirkland, Literature and Culture in Northern Ireland since 1965: Moments of Danger, London, Longman, 1996, p. 114). Instead, the activity of such reconciliation agencies is one that searches for, recognises, and colludes with the dissident and the residual across a pre-existent identitarian matrix through which these latter groups have already constituted themselves.

At such moments it is worth remembering that the Joycean model of Irish cultural plurality to which so many of these readings ultimately subscribe has as one of its crucial elements what Joyce termed ‘the new bourgeois conventions’. See James Joyce, ‘Ireland, Island of Saints and Sages’ (1907), in The Field Day Anthology of Irish Writing, ed. Seamus Deane and Andrew Carpenter, Derry, Field Day, 1991, III, p. 8.
