    Ireland-icon.pngIrelandball, also known as the Republic of Irelandball, is a democratic countryball that takes up most of the island of Ireland in western Europe. It is bordered by UK-icon.png UKball with Northern Ireland-icon.png Northern Irelandball to the North and Northeast, the Celtic Sea to the South, the Atlantic to the West, and is located just off the coast of UK-icon.pngUKball to the East. The country is divided into 4 provinces, including its capital Dublin-icon.png Dublinball located in the Leinster-icon.png Leinsterball province, giving it a total area of 27,133 square miles, making it the 118th largest country in the world.

    It maintains membership in EU-icon.png EUball, as well as the UN-icon.png UNball like almost every other country in the world.

    It is the 2nd richest countryball in EU-icon.png EUball after Luxembourg-icon.png Luxembourgball and it has the fastest growing economy in EU-icon.png EUball.

    Personality[edit | edit source]

    Ireland is the only Gaul-icon.png Celtic country that is independent, wheres all the rest are anschlussed by Germania-icon.png Germanics. Their relationship with UK-icon.png UKball is tough for centuries. It is still mad at it for not helping it during its famine but very much relies on it with trade. The two are part of the British - Irish Council, showing that they still have some friends. When Northern Ireland-icon.png Northern Irelandball is not only saying "BOMB", "Norn Iron", and etc. They sometimes fight. Usually when "Norn Iron" is "dumb" it usually tries to steal it from UKball. They also like potatoes. Very much.

    History[edit | edit source]

    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 its young, Ulster-icon.png Ulsterball, being taken away by the new UK-icon.png UKball in 1801. Then in 1845, Ireland lost its 🥔 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 it 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. The Good Friday Agreement included the removal of the border between both nations (This was thanks to EUball's new open border treaty), and [2 and Article 3] of the 'BUNREACHT NA hÉIREANN' or 'Constitution Of Ireland' to be changed, with an overwhelming 90% of the Irish population voting for the agreement.

    In 2016 it became richer than UK-icon.png UKball in GDP per capita. It still wants more 🥔 potatoes though.

    It also won Eurovision more than anyone else - a record seven times (though Sweden-icon.png Swedenball is catching up to it)!

    • It is one of the most alcoholic countryballs in the world.
    • It is rumored that there are approximately 13 million chickens in Ireland-icon.png Ireland. That's roughly three chickens for every inhabitant of the country!
    • Ireland-icon.png Ireland is not a very Sun-icon.png sunny country. So much so that the highest temperature ever recorded there was 33°C (91,4 °F), which in countries such as Brazil-icon.png Brazil is a very normal and generic temperature for the summer.
    • The bathrooms do not have switches or sockets, as with high humidity of the country it can be dangerous. Needless to say, electric showers are out of the question.
    • THERE ARE NO SNAKES IN Ireland-icon.png IRELAND. Yes, this is an amazing feature that Ireland-icon.png Ireland has! And legend has it that St. Patrick's was the one who drove the snakes out of Ireland-icon.png Ireland. However, the absence of these animals is explained by the Irish climate not being favorable for them to live and breed in the country.
    • With Gaul-icon.png Celtic and Nordic influences coming from the Vikings, Irish culture has a folklore full of mythological beings. Fairies, goblins and wizards are part of it.
    • Irish breakfast is a real feast! The meal includes fried or scrambled eggs, toast, tomatoes, bacon, beans, sausage and, in some places, potato and mushroom tarts are also served.
    • In 1882, in the first football (soccer to USA-icon.png Americans) game between Ireland-icon.png Ireland and England-icon.png England, the English beat the Irish 13×0! Of course, after that, they improved a lot, so much so that they already participated in 3 World Cups.
    • The main language spoken in Ireland-icon.png Ireland is English-icon.png English (and with a very strong accent), but Ireland-icon.png Gaelic (Irish) is also considered the country's official language. However, not all Irish speak Gaelic.
    • In Ireland-icon.png Gaelic language, the native name of the country (Éire) is a feminine noun. The name is derived from Mide-icon.png Old Irish Ériu, the name of a goddess of the Irish mythology. This also explain why the majority of the national personifications of Ireland are women: Ériu, Banba, Fódla, Kathleen Ni Houlihan, Hibernia, The Old Woman of Beare.
    • It is the country from which Halloween and St. Patrick's Day originated.
    • Contrary to popular belief in other countries (like USA-icon.png Murica), not all Irish Catholics supported independence and not all Protestants the union.
