There were American and British air bases in Northern Ireland and Scotland during the war, but not in the Republic of Ireland. The Republic of Ireland was a neutral country, so it was not involved in the war directly so its army had no involvment. Some Irish citizens fought with the British army.

A+ it was very far from the mainland of EuropeDuring World War II, Ireland was a neutral country, as it still is. Many children from countries that were involved in the war came to Ireland to be safe. Even today, people from war zones around the world have official arrangements through their governments where they can come to Ireland to live.

Through much of its history, Ireland has been involved in conflicts with the British in order to get their independence. Ireland has also had invasions from the vikings. Ireland is a neutral country, so it is not involved in any conflicts now and was not involved in World War II. It was not directly involved in World War I, but it was under British rule at that time, and the British were involved. In both World Wars many Irish men joined the British Army and fought in the wars, many losing their lives. As a neutral nation Ireland is not in any military alliances, such as NATO, and it has a strong record in peacekeeping activities. There is an Irish army, but it is not very large. Some of its personnel go on peacekeeping duties to other parts of the world.
