Calm down braveheart. Tis amusing that you still manage to get upset even when I write something that is in agreement with your normal stance on the matter. Had a hard weekend on orange whips have we?

And which country might that be?

Britain and the British isles and the British province of Ulster.

The British culture, values, aims, and ambitions are commonplace across the British isles and the British province of Ulster.

The British Isles by definition includes Eire!

Just going on the bold highlighting and weak name-calling you automatically do.

 

So, if you weren't upset then I presume you are in agreement with what I wrote?

Which book is that? There is a province of Ulster, but its part in Northern Ireland and part in Eire.

Historically there are five provinces in Ireland (or ‘Éire in English). One of them is Ulster, of which six counties are in the United Kingdom and three are in the Republic of Ireland. In Northern Ireland some people identify as British, some as Irish, some as Northern Irish and some just avoid the whole wasps nest of an issue. Of the six counties in Northern Ireland only two (Antrim and Down) are majority Protestant, the usual marker for people in Northern Ireland who consider themselves ‘British’.

Thank you for the nominative accuracy! Good post, apart from the province inflation, no-one's ever mentioned a fifth province before, but I see that it its historically correct.

Name of state:

In English - Ireland

In Irish - Éire

In legalese - Republic of Ireland (when distinction with the island of Ireland is required)

They’re called ‘fifths’ in Irish, because historically there were five ... but yeah, there are only four now.
