Ireland Life


The first people to arrive in this island are from Scotland around 6000 BC From 400 B.C, Celtic people came to Ireland from mainland Europe. The Vikings followed them from Scandinavia in the 700s. In 1171,Henry II of England seized land in the north and gave it to the Protestants from England and Scotland.

Eventually in 1921,the Catholics of the south split from the Protestant north. Their lands were named the Irish Free State and were self–governing but loosely linked to the United Kingdom.In 1949,the Irish Free State gained independence as the Republic of Ireland.
