Best Answer

Most Protestants want to remain WITH Britain and not become part of a united Ireland. Irish nationalists want to unite the country - hence the troubles. The division of Ireland into the overwhelmingly Roman Catholic republic and the north, which remained part of the renamed the 'United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland', dates from 1921. In that year Ireland was divided, following a vicious civil war. The most recent 'troubles' have been ongoing since 1969 (with breaks). Joncey

Which stretches farther south Ireland or Northern Ireland?

The proper term for what people call southern Ireland is the Republic of Ireland. The most southerly point of Ireland is Mizen Head, in Co. Cork which is in the Republic of Ireland.

Northern Ireland consists of 6 of Ireland's 32 counties, but neither the most northerly or southerly point of Ireland is in Northern Ireland. The most westerly point is also in the Republic of Ireland, in Co. Kerry, but the most easterly point is in Co. Down in Northern Ireland. See the map below, which shows all the counties of Ireland, with the 6 yellow ones being those in Northern Ireland.


Why is Northern Ireland in the UK?

The whole of the island of Ireland was in the United Kingdom from 1801 up until 1922. What is now the Republic of Ireland was given independence, after the Irish war of independence. At this point Northern Ireland was created, and remained a part of the United Kingdom. The people of the north being predominately Scottish immigrants and therefore protestants, had no wish to join the people of the south, who are predominately Catholics. Between 1969 and 1994 the I.R.A. and the Ulster paramilitaries committed atrocities against each other and innocent civilians, in what was known as the troubles. In 1994 ceasefires were called and in 1998 a peace agreement was signed. Things have been relatively peaceful in Northern Ireland since then.

What are facts in Northern Ireland?

Northern Ireland was only created in 1922. People from Britain settled in the north east part of Ireland about 400 years ago to try and colonise the island. An Act of Union made all of Ireland part of the United Kingdom in 1801. Ireland fought for its Independence, which was granted but with one condition, that 6 counties in the northeast of the island stay with the UK. This became Northern Ireland. Most people in Northern Ireland regard themselves as British or Irish, with the majority regarding themselves as British. Most Irish people in Northern Ireland have Irish passports, even though they were born in a part of the UK which would make them entitled to a British passport. You can choose your nationality in Northern Ireland, a unique situation in the world. The most northerly point on the island of Ireland is not in Northern Ireland, but in the Republic of Ireland, as Northern Ireland is largely in the northeast of the island. The Titanic was built in Northern Ireland, in Belfast. Northern Ireland is where the world famous Giant's Causeway is.Northern Ireland is a member of the United Kingdom. The latter includes Scotland, Wales, and of course, England. While Northern Ireland is physically part of Ireland, it has always seen a strong British presence. This, of course, led to the "troubles" between those wishing to remain a part of the UK, and those wishing to merge with Ireland. The divide, however, was mainly between Irish Protestants and Irish Catholics in the North. The decades long civil war gave rise to the I.R.A, the Ulster Volunteers, and other paramilitary groups and factions on all sides of the conflict.
