    — Michael Collins to UKball
    I NEED MORE GUINNESS
     
    Irelandball everyday
    Sinne Fianna Fáil, atá faoi gheall ag Éirinn,

    Buíon dár slua thar toinn do ráinig chugainn, Faoi mhóid bheith saor, Seantír ár sinsear feasta, Ní fhágfar faoin tíorán ná faoin tráill.

     
    Irelandball, singing it's national anthem
    But you see, it's not me, it's not my family
    In your head, in your head, they are fighting
    With their tanks and their bombs and their bombs and their guns
    In your head, in your head, they are crying in your head, in your head
    Zombie, zombie, zombie-eh-eh
    What's in your head, in your head?
    Zombie, zombie, zombie-eh-eh-eh
     
    — The Cranberries

    Irelandball, officaly the Republic of Irelandball, is a democratic countryball that takes up most of the island of Ireland in western Europe. It is bordered by UKball with 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 UKball to the East. The country is divided into 4 provinces, including its capital Dublinball located in the 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 EUball, as well as the UNball like almost every other countryball in the world.

    It is the 2nd richest countryball in EUball after Luxembourgball and it has the fastest growing economy in EUball.

    Personality

    Ireland is the only Celtic country that is independent, wheres all the rest are anschlussed by Germanics. Their relationship with 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 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

    Irelandball was one of Celtball's children, and while it's brother Walesball was conquered by SPQRball, it remained untouched by the Romans.

    Then after Englandball was invaded by Frankball's young Normandyball, they invaded Ireland and stayed there for 800 or more years.

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

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

    In 1916, while UKball was busy fighting German Empireball, Ireland started fighting it for independence. Eventually, in 1922, Ireland can into independence, but with the British king still as head of state and part of Ulsterball stayed with UKball to become Northern Irelandball, 26 of the Irish counties became part of Irelandball, and the other 12 part of Northern Irelandball.
    This caused a 40-year long war between Irish Republican terrorists (the I.R.A.) and Ulster Loyalist terrorists (the U.V.F mostly), known as The Troubles, many innocent Irishballs and Northern Irishballs died. Ireland remained neutral in WWII (known in Ireland as The Emergency) to prove its independence from UKball. In 1973, UKball joined EUball, and since Ireland had such strong trade agreements with UKball. it joined also.

    When both UKball and Irelandball got tired of the 40-year-border crisis with Northern Irelandball, they signed the Good Friday agreement on 10 April 1998 which ended the war. 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 UKball in GDP per capita. It still wants more 🥔 potatoes though.

    It is also tied with Swedenball for most Eurovision wins - a record seven times.

    Trivia

    • Sometimes it wears a green hat.
    • It and It's big sibling like doing scary stuff in October.
    • It is one of the most alcoholic countryballs in the world.
    • It is rumored that there are approximately 13 million chickens in Ireland. That's roughly three chickens for every inhabitant of the country!
    • Ireland is not a very sunny country. So much so that the highest temperature ever recorded there was 33°C (91,4 °F), which in countries such as 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. Yes, this is a sad thing in Ireland, And legend has it that St. Patrick's was the one who drove the snakes out of 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 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 Americans) game between Ireland and 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 is English (and with a very strong accent), but Gaelic (Irish) is also considered the country's official language. However, not all Irish speak Gaelic.
    • In Gaelic language, the native name of the country (Éire) is a feminine noun. The name is derived from 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 Murica), not all Irish Catholics supported independence and not all Protestants the union.
