Back in the 80's I was walking in Belfast when I was accosted by a masked man, brandishing a gun. He asked "Are you a Catholic or a Protestant"? I replied "Neither, I'm an Atheist". The Gunman was silent for a moment, then finally said "Is that a Catholic Atheist or a Protestant Atheist"?

@humann5682 2 anos atrás
Ha ah sort of. Obviously this is a quick overview but there are nuances too. Like the Earl of Kildare at the time supporting Yorkists claim to the English throne after the civil war. Henry VIII was concerned the Yorkists would regroup in Ireland with a sympathetic Earl of Kildare. That was a key motivation in Henry taking over Ireland. And a lot of the "proud Irish Gaelic chieftains" at the time of the Tudor conquest were more than happy to sell out their countrymen to the English Crown for a metaphorical 30 pieces of silver. Look up the _Surrender and Regrant policy_ in regards to the Tudor conquest of Ireland. And before anyone goes off on one with some uninformed propganada, I was raised in Ireland and went through the Catholic education system. Doesn't mean I'm going to be biased about history or ignore historical fact to suit propganada.

My only gripe is you did leave out the context of why Ireland wanted the spilt in the first place. It wasn't religion, there were protestants on the Republican side of every Irish rebellion. The reason why Ireland wanted the split was more about the abusive rule of England. We had pretty much only farmers exporting their product and the country was very poor actually so poor most people were slaves to land owners. There was also the famine which England didn't help us at all so many people died.

@andysmith5077 8 anos atrás
Shane Fagan It wasn't England mate, you've been sold false history. Nobody has been good to the Irish including the British (ie the English, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish) also the Roman Catholic church hasn't been good to the Irish, also guess who hasn't been very good to the Irish? The Irish. Now that's historical facts all throughout Irish history there has been a class divide. It doesn't matter if it's a duke or a monarch or a landowner from Ireland or England or Rome. The working classes have always had the short straw. Therefore this is not a nationality issue, this is a class issue and the lower working classes of society in Ireland, also England by the way have always had it bad. Don't forget that the English had to live closer to the monarchy than the Irish did. In some ways that worse.

I asked a Scot on the run in Achille island in mayo that very question when I used to visit the place 25 years ago, his answer was I'm a protestant but it makes me no better or worse.

... "Split" is an interesting way to say "colonised"
@thomkinrade9314 3 anos atrás
Kind of but not really... "colonised" is typically used to refer to a slightly different process of government-sponsored movement of peoples, in order to establish political control. The reason I find "colonised" to be the wrong word is that the King of England/Scotland already held the title to rule Ireland and did so prior to the time British people were sent. Thus, the right to govern was established, and technically law, right or wrong. "Colonised" would imply that in order to establish control in the first place, the government sponsored settlers, which is untrue in the case of British rule of Ireland. However, it is true in the case of The Americas. Funny, I am not even sure "colonised" is the correct word to describe what the British Empire did to control India, since that process was more similar to "conquest" than "colonisation". But maybe my interpretation of what's written in the dictionary is untrue. While it may just be semantics, it's important to use the correct terminology when applicable.

As a modern Irish person and after reading the horror of this comment section I just want to say now in days in the Republic practically most people don’t hate the British people, the Government and history yes, but as the old saying is ‘ Sons are not guilty of there Fathers sins ‘. There is also a growing amount of Irish people who don’t want Northern Ireland back even if they did vote to rejoin the rest of the Republic.

@jamesiii502 2 anos atrás
@Servus Domini Southern Ireland has become a corrupt capitalist puppet state run by multinationals and vulture funds. We have very much lost the ways of our 1916 socialist rebellion brothers and sisters, many Irish in the south have been corrupted and have been drawn into capitalist propaganda that we must leave our forgotten and discarded brothers and sisters who were discarded post treaty when partition came in because it will “cost too much money” which is an unfounded claim. The oppressed Irish of old would be ashamed of how this land has turned out a century later. I fear the account that made the initial comment claiming more and more southerners don’t want the north is another person who fallen into capitalist delusion. Any Irish person who still holds the values of the oppressed Irish and the Irish who rebelled vehemently want this island united.

Impressive video. One slight correction though. Ireland became fully independent in 1949 following the passing of the government of ireland act. We became a Republic as a result. Despite having 2 constitutions(a smaller less detailed one was passed in 1922) we remained part of the British empire until 1949. Irish history, albeit confusing at times, is very interesting.

Very well done. Most information here is not biased. I am Irish and Catholic, and in school we learn so much on these topics. Although he left out a bit. I agree both sides done wrong, especially Ireland with the troubles (although the Black and Tans and RUC weren't fair to any Catholics) Unfortunately, there is a lot of tension between these 2 religions even now. Orange day parades, still make a lot of Catholics feel unsafe. Back during the troubles the IRA shot 2 English Protestant children. The song Zombie by Dolores O' Riordan reffers to not just that insident but many others. Things the IRA done And the feared Black and Tans. It's 2020 and there is still Racism, Culturalism, and tension between so many people and religions. Is it more important to be right, or to be honest and fair. We all done wrong, not just in Irish and English history, but all over the world. We need to stand up and admit our wrong doings and put the hate behind us. We can't take back our history. It's part of who we are, but we can come together as one, no matter the religion, race or culture.

@MikeGreenwood51 4 anos atrás
@@reb-xu9di Dundalk is likely a lot bigger since Year 1066-1087. That's not the hour but the year. But to some one not of the Nations directly evolved it can seem complicated I am sure as the video uses expressions such as 'The King of England. Where as he was about as much the King of England as Adolf Hitler was the French Fuhrer. So whilst the video says 'King of England' The English were aware they already had a King and their King was not William the Bastard as some call him. Duke of Normandy. But that is how some historians refer to him. With out mentioning the Normans were not actual English but claimants by axe, sword and bloody conquest and the murder of King Harold Godwinson who was the King of England. Before he, Harold deceased suddenly in 1066 at the Battle of Hastings. So even the Irish may have been scratching their heads when Henry II Beauclerc 1154-1189 landed in Ireland in 1171 claiming he was the King of England when in fact he was the son of William the Bastard Norman who had murdered the King of England in Battle. Edgar Atheling the rightful King was not up to the challenge of turning the Normans away and so William the Bastard crowned himself on Christmas Day 1066. So if there were thousands of Norman's running around Ireland 105 years later claiming they were English then it is understandable from the English point of view that there may be a lot of good seriously bloody reasons why some people even at that time got a bit lost. Especially if the Normans showed the Irish their piece of paper saying they were rightfully there by authorisation of the Papacy (Pope Adrian 4th) to strengthen the hold of the Papacy over the Irish Catholic Church. So there it is. The Pope authorising a Norman to invade Ireland claiming he was the King or England whilst the real King of England was in a secret location not objecting as vigorously as needed if he wanted to turn away the conquest. But obviously Henry II Anjou Curtmantle was not in parley with the King of England who was not crowned as William the bastard had taken the crown and so Henry the II was in parley with the Pope. So whilst a supposed invasion by the King of England was occurring the English were likely not even aware they were apparently supposed to be invading on behalf of the bloody Pope. As it was not an English invasion but a Norman Anjou Invasion claiming they were English. But regardless of the fact the invaders were Papist Normans and Anjou Angevins claiming they were the King of England. The real English people were not likely to complain or stress the point over enthusiastically as they were aware that any argument with the Normans could result in their head laying on the ground not able to stand as the head had been parted f rom its legs and shoulders. Likely a few Irish ceased any ideas of any further argument with the Norman Bates King Henry II when they saw their fellow heads laying silently in the mud. Well they may have said (Not the severed heads) but the remaining. 'If the Pope wants to reform the control of the Irish Church with the King of England who is really the Son of William the bastard then maybe as with the King of England we should just let him get on with it'. So very easy to get lost! There are further complications or reasons why some got lost as many did lose or get lost. The Invasion by Henry was an invasion after the Invasion by 'Strongbow' the Earl of Penbroke and Diarmait Mac Murchada King of Leinster to Conquer Dublin (Dyvlin) which had been a Viking settlement. So whilst some may have considered the invasions to be invasions of Ireland they may have in fact been invasions of the Vikings slavery tyrants who had invaded Ireland and operated rape and pillage for slaves against the English Welsh and Scottish for more than a century from Ireland. So in fact Ireland fell to the King of England (Henry II - The Norman) by agreement with an arrangement with the deposed King of Leinster who had sought Henry the seconds assistance to regain his Leinster Kingdom. So the so called Anglo Norman Henry II was invading with the Irish (Leinster Kingdom Irish) to retake his Kingdom and defeat the invader Vikings. So whilst it is often referred to as an Invasion of Ireland by the King of England. It was more an organised co-operation posy who entered from Wales and England with the Leinster Irish to oust their enemies the Viking piratical rapist murderers. So it was a bit more comparable with the joint task force posy entering the Viking Norman Bates mansion to oust the aggressor Norman Bates who was not Irish but an invader from the Norse Viking raiders. So the house may have been on Irish soil on Ireland. The targets were not Irish as they were Vikings who may have claimed to be the King of Ireland. They had settled in Dublin (Darkpool) as early as the year 841. So they had been there for nigh 300 years.
