Ireland did not brake away from Great Britain, the republic of Ireland has its own government, six counties in the North remained loyal to Great Britain, which then became the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Ireland has a long history of uprisings and civil wars from days of Henry II till the separation in 1922. Catholic and Protestant differences, settler and local differences, Scottish settlements, Penal Code RC having no right of offices or possession of land for locals and other policy failures brought many civil wars.

In 1914, a measure of home rule was granted but outbreak of war prevented its operation. In1921, Sinn Fein party set up Irish republic and countries those refused to separate were formed a separate state as Northern Ireland under U.K.

The Irish people did not want to break away from the British Isles. The British Isles is a geographical entity. It is a group of islands consisting of the two large islands, Britain and Ireland, and many other much smaller islands. Ireland cannot break away from that. What the Irish wanted to break away from was British rule. Any country in the world wants its independence. Ireland is no different, so naturally Ireland wanted to break away from British rule.

Is Ireland in Britain?

No. Ireland is a republic which gained its indenpendancy from the British in 1922. Britain, or Great Britain as it is sometimes called, is an island consisting of England, Scotland and Wales. Ireland is a separate island to the west of it. The island of Ireland is split into the Republic of Ireland (also known as Éire) and Northern Ireland.Northern Ireland is a part of the United Kingdom (or to give it its full name: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland). This is not the same as Britain, and even the name indicates this by saying "Great Britain and Northern Ireland". It clearly indicates that they are separate. So Northern Ireland and the rest of Ireland are not part of Britain. Britain ruled all of Ireland, but Ireland was never part of Britain, being a separate island.


Why is Northern Ireland the smallest country in Britain?

Northern Ireland is not the smallest country in Britain. Northern Ireland is not in Britain. Britain is an island consisting of England, Wales and Scotland.

Northern Ireland is smaller than Wales, so it is the smallest country in the United Kingdom.

Is Ireland part of Britain?

Why is Northern Ireland part of the UK but not part of Great Britain?

BRITAIN is an island, on which are found England, Scotland and Wales. Round its coasts are a number of other islands - the Isle of Wight, the Scottish Isles and so on - and this collection of islands is GREAT BRITAIN. Ireland is a separate land mass. Until Irish independence, the British monarchs ruled over the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. When Ireland finally managed to break away, six counties in the North remained loyal to the United Kingdom, which then became the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. There is another anomaly, the Channel Islands, which are closer to France than to England, and constitute all that remains for the Duchy of Normandy: they are ruled by the Crown, but not part of either the UK or of Great Britain.


Is Northern Ireland in Great Britain?

No, Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom, but is not in Great Britain.No. Northern Ireland is on the island of Ireland, which neighbours Britain. It is an island that has England, Scotland and Wales on it.
