 United Ireland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A United Ireland is the common demand of Irish nationalists, envisaging that the island of Ireland (currently divided into the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland) be reunited as a single political entity.
Although ruled by Britain, Ireland was a united political entity from the end of the Wars of the Three Kingdoms in 1653 until 1921.
Currently about 40% of the Northern Ireland electorate vote for Irish nationalist parties that oppose the union with Britain and support a united Ireland as an alternative, although as many people vote along religious lines it is difficult to take this figure as a direct indication of levels of support for a united Ireland.

 Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Following the assassination, the IMRO was given full control of Pirin Macedonia (the Petrich District of the time) and acted as a "state within a state", which it used as a base for hit and run attacks against Yugoslavia with the unofficial support of the right-wing Bulgarian government and Fascist Italy.
IMRO, now led by Todor Aleksandrov, was largely driven out of the Greek and Yugoslav sections of Macedonia, but maintained its existence in Bulgaria, where it played a role in politics as an extreme right-wing nationalist party, urging a renewed war to liberate Macedonia.
The initial period of idealism for IMRO ended, however, with the Vinitsa Affair and the discovery by the Ottoman police of a secret depot of ammunition near the Bulgarian border in 1897.
