Is there a rivalry between Ireland and Scotland? If you look at patterns of neighbouring countries, you’d expect them to be so. Look at the Aussies and the Kiwis. How about Finland and Sweden? The infamous England and France rivalry. From what I’m told though, it doesn’t exist between Ireland and Scotland because they were both subjugated by England. It’s the old ‘team up to beat your foe’ trick says Maxwell Smart.
