Conclusion
“Humans have inhabited Ireland for millennia, but an examination of the current political structure in Ireland does not have to go back quite so far. Where exactly to begin, however, remains a good question, for every historical event can be seen to have a precedent in what came before. But one of the most obvious places to begin is with the Irish Revolution.
Growing tension and resentment in Ireland over British rule at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries and the question of Irish independence set in motion a chain of events that came to be known as the Irish Revolution. Conflicts between nationalists, who wanted a completely independent Irish republic, and unionists, who wished to remain under British control, led to the establishment of armed paramilitary groups in both areas of the island.”
