Abstract

Ireland and England have a long and conflicting history with one another. English presence in Ireland started in 1169, but England’s first attempt to colonize Ireland took place during the 1500s-1600s. Ever since the 1500s, Ireland has been one of England’s colonies and is known for being one of their oldest colonies. On December 6, 1922, the Republic of Ireland was created as a free state independent from the United Kingdom. The remaining six Northern counties stayed with the United Kingdom and became known as Northern Ireland. From 1968-1998, religion divided the two communities in Northern Ireland, between the Catholics and the Protestants. The Catholics sided with the Irish republicans who wanted to unite Northern Ireland with the Republic of Ireland. The Protestants sided with the British unionists who wanted Northern Ireland to remain a part of the United Kingdom. This conflict became known as the Troubles. This thirty-years of conflict, which is seen as a war by some, ultimately came to an end in 1998, when the Good Friday Agreement was signed by the British, Irish, and Northern Irish Governments. This agreement created “peace” in Northern Ireland. Today, the Troubles still has an impact on Northern Irish politics, as the politics in Northern Ireland are still divided by the same groups that existed during the Troubles. The religious conflict between the Irish republicans and the British unionists and the Catholics and Protestants during the Troubles from 1968 to 1998 still creates a great division in Northern Irish politics post 1998 following the Good Friday Agreement.
