Ireland was a neutral country during World War II. It was weakened by its revolution twenty years before, political unrest and the partition. Ireland wouldn't join the allies because of its tense relations with Britain and they had no love for the Axis, clearly demonstrated by the fact that Hitler had a plan to invade Ireland.
