    Abstract:
    This article explores the changes to the legal status of Scots in 'English Ireland' after the advent of the Scottish Wars of Independence (c.1295). There appears to have been a drastic change in status as the Scots in Ireland were not explicitly labelled before 1295, but were afterwards and they were arrested on sight usually. It is also peculiar that Gaelic Scots were treated no differently than any other type of Scottish people as the culture and language of Irish Gaels was specifically attacked in contemporary English discourse.
