 Ireland, Northern. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Northern Ireland’s relatively distinct history began in the early 17th cent., when, after the suppression of an Irish rebellion, much land was confiscated by the British crown and “planted” with Scottish and English settlers.
However, the Irish Free State, now the Republic of Ireland (see Ireland, Republic of), which was established in 1922, refused to recognize the finality of the partition; and violence erupted frequently on both sides of the border.
At the end of 1969 a split occurred in the Irish Republican Army (IRA), which is the illegal military arm of the Sinn Fein party; the new “provisional” wing of the IRA was made up of radical nationalists.

 Paul Foot: Dividing Ireland (1988)
Ireland is the oldest colony in that empire.
He knew enough about the poison of religious discrimination to realise that the partition of Ireland would write that discrimination permanently into the constitution of both halves of Ireland, and that the damage to the working class movement throughout the island would be incalculable.
For nearly a year Ireland was plunged into another war – between the new government representing the Sinn Fein majority for the treaty and the anti-treaty militants.

 Ireland v Commission of the European Communities. [1988] EUECJ C-242/86 (8 June 1988)
That summary report was circulated to all the Member States, including Ireland, early in 1986 and was the basis of the discussions of the EAGGF Committee in March 1986.
Ireland was therefore informed of the Commission' s intentions as early as March 1986.
Although it is true that the attention of the Irish authorities was drawn to an extract from the summary report referred to above, that extract was received by the responsible department only in September 1986, when it was no longer practical to cancel the transmission to the Court of this application.

 Irish Free Radio 1980-1988 - Alans Radio Pages
Frustrated at what they considered to be unfair competition and the news that Carey had imported a 50kilowatt transmitter from the USA, the state broadcaster RTE (Radio Telefis Eireann) took matters into its own hands and started to jam the signals of both stations in March of 1984.
In an amazing situation, (which some would say could only happen in Ireland) the government of the day issued an order to RTE to stop the jamming, but this request was initially ignored by RTE, who proceeded to install even more sophisticated jamming systems.
Finally, a newly elected strong government, introduced the 1988 Communications Act which was intended to silence the pirates, and launch legit local radio.

 Bomb threat curtails debate on Northern Ireland deadlock - Europe - International Herald Tribune
BELFAST, Northern Ireland: The Northern Ireland Assembly missed another deadline to form a government and politicians were forced to flee the building when one of the province's most infamous Protestant militants tossed a bomb-filled bag into the entrance Friday.
The prime ministers of Britain and Ireland, Tony Blair and Bertie Ahern, said Stone's threat illustrated why rival British Protestant and Irish Catholic politicians should compromise and form a stable coalition as the Good Friday peace accord intended.
Stone was responsible for one of Northern Ireland's most dramatic days - March 16, 1988, when he launched a solo gun-and-grenade strike on an IRA funeral.

A huge Irish monument once dubbed Ireland's "Stonehenge", may at one time have been a "school of astronomy", where ancient skywatchers studied the risings of various heavenly bodies during the year.

Ireland's Stonehenge 'reappeared' in an aerial photograph of the townland of Carn Beg a few kilometers north of Dundalk taken in the early 1970s by Dr. J.K. St. Joseph, of Cambridge University.
