Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is a region of Ireland that is still part of the United Kingdom. It sits on land that used to be occupied by Gaels who were Catholic and spoke Irish. It is part of thRead moree province of Ulster. There has been much political unrest and violence that has broken out in this region many times, because of the war between Unionists and Nationalists. Basically, Unionists are the Protestant descendants of the colonists from England who want Northern Ireland to remain a British state, while Nationalists are Catholic descendants of the Gaels who wish to break free from British rule and establish an independent Northern Ireland.

Controversial in Northern Ireland canvas prints

The United Kingdom of Great Britain conquered Ireland in the 16th century during the Battle of Kinsale. Upon the establishment of British rule in the region, many Irish lords left the land and settled in other parts of Europe. Their lands were taken by England and the region was placed under the rule of a Protestant, English-speaking government.

Tumultuous in Northern Ireland canvas prints

The political unrest caused by the dissent among Catholic Nationalists and Protestant Unionists is called The Troubles. These low-level, but very violent urban conflicts have been ravaging the region since the 1960s. The technology of warfare has changed but the main thrust of the disagreement remains the same. Thousands have lost their lives to these Troubles. The Catholics established their own rebel group called the Irish Republican Army or IRA. This was declared as a terrorist organization by the British, which then proceeded to counter their attacks with the founding of the Royal Ulster Constabulary or the RUC. Elements of the British Army called the Special Air Service, which is England’s own branch of crack commandos, were also called in to support the troops. The violence caused by the clashes of these two sides was nothing short of epic. The loss of life and the casualties suffered by both sides prompted Sinn Feinn, which is the Catholic’s political arm, and the British government to call for ceasefires many times. But these proved to be temporary and inefficient solutions to the problem, and could scarcely stem the flow of blood brought about by the fighting.
