Co-operation and Conflict
Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland
As part of my conflict and co-operation section in my coursework, Ireland is thought to be a very good example as Ireland has been through various conflicts leading to one factor, for years now. Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland are two different countries. Ulster has a union with the British Government and its head of state is the Queen of England. Eire is a republic and democratic country with its own government in Dublin and consists of a majority of Catholic population.
The conflict in Ireland is either religious or something else as the story of religion and conflict in Ireland, historically and today is the story of combinations of religion and politics, however social and economical factors do arise too.
* Religious: Catholics and Protestants.
* Political: Nationalists and Unionists.
* Social: land ownership
* Economical: Wealth and land ownership
Between 100BC - 1500AD there were three groups of settlers who came to Ireland and as evidence suggests, these people came to Ireland as 'settlers' and so there no intentions to invade Ireland.
