In spite of the many historical studies of Irish Protestant migration to America in the eighteenth century, there is a noted lack of study in the transatlantic migration of Irish Protestants in the nineteenth century. The main hindrance in rectifying this gap has been finding a method with which to approach a very difficult historiographical problem. The Invisible Irish endeavours to fill this blank spot in the historical record. Rankin Sherling imaginatively uses the various bits of available data to sketch the first outline of the shape of Irish Presbyterian migration to America in the nineteenth century. Using the migration of Irish Presbyterian ministers as "tracers" of a larger migration, Sherling demonstrates that eighteenth-century migration of Protestants reveals much about the completely unknown nineteenth-century migration. An original and creative blueprint of Irish Presbyterian migration in the nineteenth century, The Invisible Irish calls into question many of the assumptions that the history of Irish migration to America is built upon.

Review:

"The Invisible Irish is a serious advance in research in Irish emigration and an important contribution to the field of Irish studies, especially in its treatment of questions about the Irish diaspora and Irish identity."
- Brian M. Walker, Queen's University of Belfast
"Rankin Sherling's study adds massively to our knowledge of the great Irish migrations."
- Don MacRaild, Ulster University
"Irish Protestants - most descendants of 17th-century Plantation Scots Presbyterians - have become the "invisible Irish" of the title, lost in the exodus of Irish Catholics to America in the 1800s, particularly during the Great Famine. Sherling came up with an ingenious approach to solve this puzzle: follow the clerics.

[R]eaders - particularly those with Protestant-Irish roots (including this reviewer) will glean insights into Irish Presbyterianism, the role of the clergy and the forces behind this overlooked migration. Sherling's hard slog through the data has produced some surprising results."
- Dean Jobb, The Scotsman
