A study was conducted to explore whether participants in Northern Ireland attend tc, and princess inf information about, different group members as a function of a single dimension of category membership (religion) or as a function of additional and/or alternative bases fmr group membership. Utilizing a bogus 'newspaper story' paradigm, we explored whether participants would differentially recall target attributes as a function of tyre dimensions of category membership. Findings from this recall measure suggested that information concerning ingroup and outgroup members was pr ceased as an interactive function of both religion and gender intergroup dimensions. Religion vas only used to guide processing of more specific information if the story character was also an outgroup member on the gender dimension. These Endings suggest a complex pattern of intergroup representation in the processing of group-relevant information in the Northern Irish context.
