The inaccurate maps used by the navigators, the attempts to sail aginst the Gulf Stream, the fact that many had lost their anchors in prior engagements and the unusually strong storms were a formula for disaster. Between 18 and 24 ships were lost along the rugged western Irish coast.

The Spanish Armada was an enormous naval fleet designed to provide protection for a Spanish invasion force in 1588. The fleet was dispersed and the invasion did not occur. This has nothing whatsoever to do with Shakespeare's play Hamlet, written some twelve years later.

Elizabeth managed to keep England at peace for nearly 30 years, despite the country being at war with France at the onset of her succession; an unfortunate circumstance of her half-sister's reign. With the execution of Mary Queen of Scots, Spain emerged as England's greatest enemy. Under Elizabeth's rule, the English navy was encouraged to raid Spanish shipping vessels and demolish Spanish monopolies. This outraged Phillip, who launched the Spanish Armada in 1559 in retaliation to the English. A Catholic uprising against a Protestant England, the Armada was eventually defeated by Elizabeth's powerful Royal Navy.

Earthquakes actually do occur in Ireland, but they are very mild, not even strong enough to do any damage and are barely noticeable. Ireland is not close enough to any major geological faults for there to be major earthquakes in Ireland.

It is just Ireland's location. As there are no major faults near Ireland, volcanic and seismic activity is low. There are no active volcanoes in Ireland but sometimes very small earthquakes do occur in Ireland, or off its coasts.It is just Ireland's location.

Raccoons do not occur naturally in Ireland. If there are any raccoons in that country, they are most likely escaped pets.

User Avatar

yes, but it was most prevalent in the west of Ireland. Ireland was still a single country when it happened. The division of the country into two parts (Northern Ireland and The Republic of Ireland) had yet to occur.

Yes. Tornadoes can and do occur in Ireland, but they are generally weak and don't cause any more than moderate damage.

User Avatar

Yes, tornadoes can occur almost anywhere, most are weak though. Of note, the oldest surviving record of a tornado is of one in Ireland in 1054.

Floods occur in Ireland because it gets lots of rain and this can swell the lakes and rivers. Serious flooding is not very common in Ireland, in comparison to how serious floods can be in some countries in the world.

In 1921, as a result of the Irish War of Independence.Ireland was given independence from Britain, but 6 counties in the north-east exercised their right to opt out of the newly created Irish Free State, rejoining Britain and becoming Northern Ireland.The two entities now occupying the island are Ireland(also called the Republic of Ireland) and Northern Ireland, a part of the United Kingdom.
