Best Answer

The terrible combination of politics and religion has had deadly consequences for some people living in Northern Ireland. Catholics and Protestants have been vilifying, attacking, torturing and killing each other in a seemingly endless cycle which has recently begun to finally end. Ulster, the focal point of most of the violence, is an amazingly beautiful province and currently has one of the lowest crime rates in the world.

AnswerNorthern and Southern people don't hate each other. The hate is in specific extremist minorities in Northern Ireland. Half the population is Catholic and the other half is Protestant. Catholics usually prefer to be categorised as Irish and Nationalist (or more extremists as Republican), while Protestants usually prefer to be categorised as British and Unionist (or more extremists as Loyalist).

Nationalists want a 'United Ireland' independent from the United Kingdom.

Unionists want Northern Ireland to remain separate from the Republic of Ireland and part of the United Kingdom.

AnswerThe British Government intervened to try to make peace in the past. AnswerI am a protestant and I am not 'English'. I like to categorise myself as Irish. I live in Belfast in Northern Ireland. People from the Republic do not hate us, and the same goes for people from Northern Ireland, we don't hate people from the Republic. There is still some minor violence that goes on, but this is just society, violence happens, bigoted people still exist, look at the BNP in England, it's not just in Northern Ireland.

You can be Catholic and British, Protestant and Irish and vice-versa, your religion does not determine where you are from. You make it sound like this is some sort of Iraq situation. It's not. Do your research folks. I live in a very good part of the world, a place where some people would love to live if they gave it a chance.

AnswerThere is barely any fighting at all in Ireland, no hate crimes and quite honestly it's way more peaceful in Ireland than in the USA. I live here and I'm admitting to it! Northern people don't hate Southern people, Southern people don't hate Northern people, they live with the fact that there are going to be differences in the world and don't make a big deal out of it anymore. I honestly agree with the fourth comment you people honestly need to do your research better! High School Freshman.

*********************************************

I would like to just add to the above answers. I do not get the impression after living here for 18 months that there is any real hatred from north to south or vice versa. There are some economic tensions that may bring out the ugly side of a Southerner because they have to rely on the stronger economy in the North. But to use the word hatred is a bit extreme. The South is dealing with their own economic crisis at the minute, so if there is any hatred anywhere on this island, its to be found directed at Dublin government! I would also add, there is far less crime here in Northern Ireland than where I came from in USA. I have lived in several countries since I left America in 1996. I must say unequivocally, that the peope of Northern Ireland from both Catholic and Protestant communities are by far the loveliest, most genuine people that I have met anywhere. They are absolutely wonderful, cant do enough for you. And they treat each other really well, considering the pain of the past. Its so lovely to see on a regular basis. Of course there are the elements from both sides that cant rise above their past beliefs, and continue to believe that making noise is more effective than being community leaders; but that does not mean their arguments are invalid, as they are indeed fed up with policing, etc. it will take a few slaps on the wrist for them to really see that they are going nowhere fast. Better for both communities, because the noise makers do a lot of damage to perception of peace. Other than that, I really sincerely believe Northern Ireland is the best kept secret of the Western World. Its so beautiful here, and with the genuine people to match the scenery, what more could anyone want. Hatred? Gone with the Wind!

An immigrant is someone coming from a country other than the one that they are now in, usually with a requirement for documentation, like a visa, to enable them access to the country they are now in. In the context of Ireland, someone from the Republic of Ireland (the proper term for what people call southern Ireland) living in Northern Ireland, would not be considered an immigrant. Someone from the Republic of Ireland going to some other countries could be regarded as an immigrant. It depends on where they are going.


Why is Northern Ireland called Ulster?

Northern Ireland is not called Ulster. Some people mistakenly use the term, but Ulster and Northern Ireland are not the same. Ulster is one of 4 Provinces on the island of Ireland.

Three of Ulster's counties are in the Republic of Ireland and the other 6 are in Northern Ireland. So Northern Ireland forms most of Ulster, but not all of it, so they are not the same thing.
