This chapter examines the role sound plays in the construction and maintenance of sectarian cultures in Northern Ireland. The specific case of Northern Ireland is then set in a wider context of soundscape study advancing the argument that the sonic space has been overlooked in traditional conflict studies despite the key role it plays in society in general, but in particular in a society like Northern Ireland with a rich aural tradition.
