How lo to ng does it takeTravel time from southern Ireland to northern Ireland?
That's a really silly question, i live on the boarder just to
the Northern Ireland side to to get into the South it would be
about 30 second walk?
where in the north to where in the south?
How was the southern half of Ireland converted if St. Patrick spent most of his time in the northern half?
That is a complex question to answer. In 1882 an Irish team formed. Northern Ireland only came into existence in 1921 and at that time a separate organisation to look after football in Northern Ireland was formed. There were then two international teams, both taking players from all around Ireland. It was not until 1953, that a restriction was put on the team to only takes its players from within Northern Ireland and for the…
Firstly, there was no such place as Northern Ireland until 1922. The famine was in the 1840s. The area of Ireland that would now be known as Northern Ireland also had some suffering from the famine, though the worst of it was in the west and south of Ireland. Appeals for help were made from different parts of Ireland, including parts of what would be now known as Northern Ireland. Those appeals would have been…
Northern Ireland was formed at the same time as what is now known as the Republic of Ireland. Initially it was the Irish Free State. Prior to this, Ireland was a single entity. In 1922 they became separate. The Republic of Ireland didn't officially become a republic until 1948. That had no impact on Northern Ireland, as it was already in existence by then.
Northern Ireland never joined England. They are on two separate islands, so they have no physical connection. Politically, Northern Ireland and England, along with Wales and Scotland, are known as the United Kingdom. At one time all of Ireland was part of the United Kingdom, until what is now called the Republic of Ireland became independent in 1922, which in the process created Northern Ireland. It is the part of the island of Ireland that…
The northern Ireland state was gerrymandered to give a unionist protestant majority over the nationalist catholic population of northern Ireland. If the whole of the province or nine countys of ulster had been partitioned into northern Ireland then it would have been 50 50 or in time unionists might even have been a minority.
Northern Ireland was only officially created in 1922. At that time over a million people lived there and so they could all be said to be the first inhabitants of Northern Ireland. Going back further, the first people to come to the island of Ireland are believed to have come from northern Spain over 8000 years ago.
All of Ireland was part of the United Kingdom between 1801 and 1922. Then what is now the Republic of Ireland became independent and at the same time Northern Ireland was first created and stayed part of the United Kingdom. So the United Kingdom did not get control of Northern Ireland; it was part of the United Kingdom from the moment it came into existence.
In 1922 Ireland was partitioned which created Northern Ireland and what is now the Republic Ireland. Britain and Ireland are separate islands, so no part of Ireland was with Britain, which consists of just England, Scotland and Wales. Ireland was part of the United Kingdom, which consisted at that time for Britain and Ireland, and when the Ireland was divided Northern Ireland stayed a part of the United Kingdom while the rest of Ireland became…
