Does contemporary "Liberal" Southern Irish Anti-Catholicism have it's roots in Conor "Cruise" O'Brien's response to the Troubles?

No he didn't have a valid point. The six county statelet is not a nation, and even the Protestants don't regard it as such.
OBriens point is that North West Ulsters population are radically different to the population elsewhere on the island due to very large differences in religion culture politics and customs.
He developed the point rather well and it is indisputable that two nations now occupy the island.

The DUP in many ways are not that different from Fianna Fail.
