    History

    Irelandball was Gaul-icon.png Celtball's children, and while their sibling Wales-icon.png Walesball was conquered by SPQR-icon.png SPQRball, it remained independent.

    Then after England-icon.png Englandball was invaded by Frankball's young, Normandy-icon.png Normandyball, They invaded Ireland and stayed there for 800 or more years.

    In 1603, England-icon.png England forced Irelandball to become Protestant (see above), and conquered it in 1649. Then in 1688-1692, England-icon.png Englandball fought a war against Catholic Irelandball, resulting in Ireland becoming mostly Protestant, and laws that removed most of Catholic Ireland's rights, but over the years Irelandball regained its Catholic-icon.png Catholic way and is now mostly Catholic-icon.png Catholic.

    In 1798, Irelandball rebelled against UK-icon.png Britainball, resulting in his young, Ulster-icon.png Ulsterball, being taken away by the new UK-icon.png UKball in 1801. Then in 1845, Ireland lost their 🥔 potatoes. then again in 1847, and 1851. This led to thoughts of independence from UK-icon.png UKball, but this was not shared by Ulster-icon.png Ulsterball, who decided to remain as part of UK-icon.png UKball in 1912.

    In 1916, while UKball was busy fighting German Empire-icon.png German Empireball, Ireland started fighting them for independence. Eventually, in 1921, Ireland can into independence, but part of Ulster stayed with UK-icon.png UKball to become Northern Ireland-icon.png Northern Irelandball leaving 26 out of 32 parts of their island. This caused a brutal and bloody 40-year long war between the two nations, known as The Troubles (this war was not endorsed by either nation). Ireland remained neutral in WWII (known in Ireland as The Emergency) to prove its independence from UK-icon.png UKball. In 1973, UK-icon.png UKball joined EUball, and since Ireland had such strong trade agreements with UKball it joined also. When both UK-icon.png UKball and Ireland-icon.png Irelandball got tired of the 40-year-border crisis with Northern Ireland-icon.png Northern Irelandball, they signed the Good Friday agreement on 10 April 1998 to keep "happy" with UK-icon.png UKball.
