Northern Ireland Conflict Destiny Vazquez
period 5 It started in the 17th century when England successfully obtained Northern Ireland after a series of rebellions on the land. During the 20th century there began to be poitical seperation in Northern Ireland from the rest of Ireland because most Irish Catholics desired full independence from British rule, but Irish Protestants were afraid of living in a country ruled by a Catholic majority. This dispute lead to sporatic violence along Europe. There were riots, battles, and death that came with this conflict, but there seemed to be no other way to get eachother's opinions across without violence and hate at that time. The main sides of the conflict are Irish Catholic and Irish Protestant. This conflict has been breaking apart Northern Ireland from the rest of Ireland and even broke apart the people of Northern Ireland. Our organization, Ireland Resolutions Organization
helps voice the opinion of our people who want the best for their country. What's the issue? The Conflicting Sides Northern Ireland The Protestant Unionist Community in Northern Ireland wants to remain apart of the United Kingdom, while the Catholic Nationalist Community of Northern Ireland want to be apart of the Republic of Ireland. This conflict arose in the 17th century after England successfully obtained Northern Ireland after a series of rebellions to claim the land, but not everyone was satisfied with the matter.
