With a population of nearly 2 million Northern Ireland is the smallest nation in the United Kingdom.
Northern Ireland was created in 1920 when the Government of Ireland Act divided the country into two separate units. Belfast the capital of the north and Dublin of the south. In 1949 an Independent Republic of Ireland was established in the south.
Northern Ireland has been marked by sectarian violence over the years. In recent times the political parties have been working towards compromise and a power-sharing government now governs Northern Ireland.
For more information about the history of Northern Ireland see my recommended reading section at the bottom of this page.
