Dunno about Jonathan Swift. He was dead 56 yrs before the Act of Union went through.

I thought Lewis considered himself Irish?

Anyway here's my list

List:
He did. His father was Welsh and he wrote a book called "My Irish Life" which criticised "Anglo-Saxons" and called their accents "demonic". I know nothing of his politics though. Before partition some Unionists considered themselves Irish and British (a few still do).

Good shout.

Tbf, there are plenty of likeable unionists. The problem isn't unionism per se, just certain manifestations of unionism.
Ditto nationalism.
