Abstract

The formation and consolidation of negative stereotypes about the Irish in the minds of British in nineteenth and twentieth centuries are considered in the article. The basic methods of distribution of such views are highlighted. The most striking images formed by the media, literature, society are analyzed. It was found that the images of the Irish formed as a response to the demands of society, and most importantly, as a response to the political dominance of the UK in the world in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
