  Northern Ireland national football team - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Northern Ireland's best World Cup performance was in their first appearance in the competition, the 1958 World Cup, where they reached the Quarter-finals after beating Czechoslovakia 2-1 in the play-off.
The Northern Ireland team is the successor to the all-Ireland national football team that existed before the formation of the Irish Free State (now the Republic of Ireland) in 1921.
Supporters of the Northern Ireland team are often strongly unionist, and nationalists in the region often give their support to the Republic's team.

Before the change of government, Ireland had been one of the last predominantly free-trading countries in the world.
It is unclear how far Ireland's market power in the cattle trade affected UK purchasers of livestock, or how far British exporters could pass the effects of Irish tariffs onto Irish consumers.
The authors tentatively conclude that Ireland probably did not 'lose' the Economic War, although this conclusion is very sensitive to assumptions concerning the market power of its food exporters and the substitutability of UK imports.

Widely recognized as one of the West Coast's most important and critically acclaimed practitioners of conceptual and installation art, David Ireland (born 1930) has taken the concept of art itself as one of his subjects.
In this book accompanying the first full-scale retrospective of Ireland's work, curator and author Karen Tsujimoto provides an insightful overview of more than thirty years of the artist's accomplishments, from his drawings, sculptures, and site-specific installations to his remarkable series of architectural transformations, including his well-known house at 500 Capp Street in San Francisco.
Chronicling Ireland's circuitous route to his calling, Tsujimoto explores how key life experiences have influenced his artistic perspective--from his early art-student days, through his years as an African importer and safari guide, to his long-standing interest in Eastern, and particularly Zen, philosophy and his deep connections with the San Francisco Bay Area conceptual art community.

When writer David McFadden sets out on a tour of Ireland, he is determined to so do in a relatively innocent state.
Using as a guide only In Search of Ireland, a 1930 title by travel writer H. Morton, he plans to follow the same route, to try to determine how things have changed and how they have remained the same.
But soon he is wandering more and more erratically around the country, poking into any corner and musing over any sight that takes his fancy – from a cozy guest house in Kilcullen to the legendary Hill of Tara, from the south-coast pub run by twin sisters to the windswept reaches of the Ballaghbeama Gap.
