Most Irish people are Roman Catholic, but since the Reformation the growing number of Protestants have grew.

In the 1100s the British took control of The Republic of Ireland. Since the 1600s most Irish peopel had become farmers on Britains land. The Irish had problems with each others religon. Most of Britan is Protestant, and the Irish are mostly Roman Catholic.

In the 1840s millions of people from Ireland moved to the U.S, because of potatoe famine and Irelands poor economy.
