Ireland split from Great Britain in the?

Ireland split from Great Britain on the 6th December 1922 under the Government of Ireland Act 1920. Northern Ireland which had by this time been partitioned from Ireland was able to opt out of joining the Free State and staying with the rest of Great Britain. Pretty much because all the politicians were protestant…. Even though there was a lot of Catholics around the region their voice wasn't heard as they had no political representation. And that's when the rows (arguments) started which reached it heights in the 70's & 80's.

The whole of Ireland was free and independent until 1650 when Cromwell paid a visit.

Castles

Why does Ireland have so many castles?

Because the kings at the time in history when castle were built, wanted to protect their lands from other kings. To do this, they had to build many castles.

Improvement:

There are many different types of castles in Ireland, of different periods, starting from fortified medieval castles that were built as defensive structures from around the 12th century to large pleasure type castles of the neogothic or Victorian period which were built by the very rich as a status symbol.

In medieval times, there were a lot of local Gaelic kings or chieftains that would have had conflict with each other and had their own fortified castles for this reason. There are also countless Norman Castles, which were the homes of landowning families, but were also fortified for fear of attacks.

Snakes

What kind of snakes are in Ireland?

There are no native snakes in Ireland - it's one of the few places on earth that is almost free from reptiles, having only about one species of lizard, which can sometimes be seen in the very south of Ireland. It is the common lizard, known as Lacerta Vivipara, and is very small. A lot of people in Ireland would have never seen one or even know it exists.

How did county galway get its name?

The county takes it name from the city. The name of the city comes from the Gaillimh river (River Corrib) that ran beside the earliest settlement, which was called Dún Bhun na Gaillimhe ("fort at the mouth of the Gaillimh"). Gaillimh means "stony" as in "stony river". The Corrib is also the name of the lake from which the river flows, and which is also in the county of Galway. Another possible explanation is the name comes from the Irish "Gall", which means foreigner, given the city's foundation. Historically, the name was written as Gallive, which is closer to the Irish pronunciation.
