This chapter analyses the interaction of the four narratives when faced with the long-term foreign policy issue of Ireland's place within the European project and the challenges that have arisen there from. It evaluates the explanatory power of this narrative competition for an understanding of the shape of contemporary Irish foreign policy. This chapter discusses the representations of the European project by the four narratives, the alienation of the Anglo-American State narrative and the hegemonic dominance of the European narrative.

Keywords:   foreign policy, narratives, Ireland, European project, Anglo-American State narrative, hegemonic dominance, European narrative
